Duc de Loussac VS Bas-Armagnac 750ml

NV Duc de Loussac VS Bas-Armagnac [click image to zoom]
image may not be actual bottle available

Scents of wood and grapes evolve into aromas of peanuts, baked bread and oak resin. Taste is dry to off-dry, with flavors of light toffee, honey, caramel, peanut butter and marshmallow. Ends long, a little narrow in scope, and semisweet. A young Armagnac that requires a bit of patience.

Country: France

Region: Armagnac

Type: Armagnac
Armagnac is the idiosyncratic style of Brandy made in the Gascony region in South West France. Although made from the same grape varieties as its better know and nearby relative Cognac, Armagnac is a distinctly different spirit. Armagnac's ability transmit its terroir, or sense of place is attributed to the fact that unlike Cognac it is only distilled once, as opposed to twice, and is made by small producers, not a few large producers. Therefor instead of being made from a blend of grapes from vineyards across the region, Armagnacs are often from grapes grown on the distillers own plot. While the region of Bas-Armagnac reputedly makes the finest (there is also Haut-Armagnac and Armagnac-Ténarèze), due to the range of styles finding the best is often down to personal preference.
