Darroze 1996 Domaine De Salie Bas-Armagnac

 Aromas of orange peel and prune, licorice and vanilla and fresh toast. The palate is dominant with spice of licorice and pepper, then prune and quince come on the long finish. D&M Tasting Notes

Straw yellow color with golden tints. A very fine nose where some fruity flavors (quince, figs, orange peel) are mixed with linden, mint and vanilla. On the palate, the tannins are round. We feel again this incredible finesse. Complex and long on the palate. Darroze

Domaine de Salié is in the village of le Frêche, in the heart of the ‘Grand Bas Armagnac’ area, near the terroirs of Domaine de Pinas, Jouatmaou, Coquillon and Guillemouta. For the last decade or so, Gilles Sarraute has been looking after the vines and turned to organic farming in 2008.

49% ABV Bottled: February 2021 25 Years in Oak Barrels.

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
