Tasting note: Bottled in 2019, the 1960 Castarede is one of the most elegant Armagnacs we’ve tasted to date. Heading into dessert territory, it opens with sustained, high pitch aromas of sticky date and pecan pie unfolding with hints of salted-caramel chocolate and Grand Muscat. Showing no loss of vitality after six decades in oak, it's seductive and silky with a superb rush of fruit cake, baking spices, rancio and café crèmes framed by super fine tannins and a creamy finish that's briefly succulent and fabulously long. Reference point here is the Dartigalongue house style. It should equally please lovers of Hors d'age Cognac. 40% Alc./Vol.
