Janneau Extra Grand Armagnac (700ml)
Janneau is the oldest house in the Armagnac region, founded in 1851 in Condom, France by Pierre Etienne Janneau.
The stunning presentation of this limited release bottling includes a 'pyramid' style decanter with old style metal 'bottle ticket' replacing a paper label. Packaged in a white cylinder.
Tasting note: Burnished copper colour with minor sediment floating in the glass (caramel has been added). A moderate shellac top note is followed by spicy cigar box and dried stone fruit aromas, the latter accentuating as dates, spicy raisin, vanilla and honey with aeration. Medium dry, the palate continues the fruit cake like flavours with a spicy, gently warming spirit. There’s a pleasant lightness to this Armagnac; It finishes delicate and medium dry with subtle dried fig, spice and vanilla flavours persisting into the aftertaste. It needs plenty of time to draw out its virtues which are initially held in check by the oak. 43% Alc./Vol.
