This Armagnac is aged for a minimum of eighteen years. A well-aged Armagnac from Janneau's Single Distillery range, made using Ugni Blanc grapes, which are double-distilled and aged in Limousin casks for 18 years. Rich in juicy fruit and fragrant floral notes, with touches of oak-y resin imparting depth to the palate. A top expression from a great range.
Armagnac is a grape brandy from the Gascony region of southwestern France. Its closest relative is Cognac, another grape brandy from an appellation located about 100 miles north of Armagnac. Even though it is related to and often confused with Cognac, Armagnac is very different with regards to its grapes, terroir, distillation, élevage, blending, aromas, tastes and textures. In truth, France's two finest brandies made from wine are not very much alike at all. Armagnac pre-dates Cognac by about 150 years but never achieved the widespread sales figures that its relatives in the Charente obtained. In contrast to commercial sales, however, the independent producer of Armagnac has always commanded a more important restaurant presence and level of connoisseur appreciation.
