Darroze 1964 Chateau De Gaube Bas Armagnac

The nose is still very fresh for an Armagnac of this age. Matured fruit flavors (quince, apple) on the first nose, while the second nose is marked by dried fruits (walnuts, almonds). On the palate, the balance is perfect, a sign that the aging process was perfectly controlled. Long on the finish. Distillery Notes   100% Baco 57 Years in oak. Bottled: April 2019  43.2% ABV

This was the original basis for the business: single vintage, cask-strength, single domain Armagnacs bottled to order. No additives are used for the Collection series, and none of these Armagnacs are ever blended. Each is marked with the month and year of bottling so that the buyer knows exactly how long the spirit rested in barrel (once bottled, the ageing process stops).

Marc has partnered with a high-quality mobile distiller, who makes the rounds in a truck after harvest much as mobile distillers would in the bygone days of horse and wagon. Thus Marc both buys barrels of aged Armagnac from farmers like his father did, and he buys the just-distilled white spirits from a given farm and ages it himself. Typically, a new spirit will go into a new barrel in the drier Darroze cellar (Marc has separate ageing cellars), two conditions that encourage faster evaporation and oxidation. After several years, this spirit is racked into an older barrel and moved to the more humid cellar, factors that naturally slow the maturation process. Importer Notes
