Finesse, authenticity, rarity, elegance are all words that characterise these Armagnacs presented in crystal decanters, specially produced to showcase these exceptional products.
Each batch is unique (only 83 bottles), each decanter is numbered and accompanied by a certificate attesting to the origin and respect of all the stages of ageing to justify this particular luxury.
Wine Region: Armagnac - France
Grape: Folle Blanche, Baco, Ugni Blanc
Tasting notes: "Gold color, brown tints. The nose is very generous, with notes of candied fruits (tangerine, prune) and tobacco. The second nose offers aromas of creme brulee, honey and brioche. On the palate, this Armagnac remains very lively and fresh. There are notes of honey, dried apricot, chocolate mint. The finish never ends. Superb." Marc Darroze
About the winery: As the son of acclaimed chef Jean Darroze, Francis had a natural inclination to the culinary arts and a taste for tradition and authenticity. He channelled this into a passioned search for quality individual estate Armagnacs, starting as a trader and producer of vintage Bas-Armagnacs in 1974. With the utmost respect for the spirit, alcohol levels are reduced through years of evaporation through ageing — never through dilution with water. Blending and colouring agents are also prohibited. And to prolong the ageing process, the Armagnac is only bottled when ordered. The business is now in the hands of Francis' son Marc, a trained oenologist.
