A special blend of Armagnac over 35 years old created to celebrate the 170th anniversary of the house. Blending Bas-Armagnac from the 1974 & 1976 vintages (70%-30%), grapes used are Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc and Baco. It opens with mild shellac and woody notes. 3-4 minutes of air contact releases nut and raisin cake. After seven minutes, dark chocolate, manuka honey and toasted almonds are suggested but the nose remains frustratingly shy. Broad and rich in the mouth with a flash of mid-palate sweetness in the form of cocoa, nougat and roasted nuts, a rush of oak closes the finish. We tasted 15ml; expect it to show better from a full bottle after ample air contact. 42% Alc./Vol.
