Dartigalongue 25 Yr. Bas Armagnac

This Grand Eau-de-Vie was created by the cellar master to illustrate the beauty and richness of their Armagnac. The youngest vintage used in this wonderful expression has spent a minimum of 25 years in oak barrels, but some of the eau-de-vie in the composition are much older; and since the barrel is never completely emptied, there remain Armagnacs inside that are many decades old. Benoit Hillion, Director of Dartigalongue

Blend of several vintages aged much more than 25 years in oak barrels.

Nose: Vanilla, dried fruits, spices on the nose, as well as white flower notes after a short aeration.

Palate: The palate is intense, developing aromas of dried fruits, spices, hints of "rancio," with a wonderful licorice finish.

Very subtle and elegant extra old blend.

 "The dense copper color is dazzling and free from sediment. First sniffs detect old leather-bound books, library, coffee grounds, saddle leather, and cedar; more time in the glass releases bakery-like aromas of mincemeat pie, allspice, and biscuit batter. Entry is seductively succulent, as in dried apricot, white raisins, and prune, as well as piquant with freshly ground pepper; midpalate highlights the dried fruits and adds astringent flavors such as citrus peel, nutmeg, flaxseed oil, and litchi. Finishes gracefully and medium long, with a charming ending flurry of oak resin/maple. Very nice indeed." ***** Highest Recommendation  Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal, 2017

The oldest house in Bas Armagnac, the Dartigalongue family began to distill in 1813. In 1838, Pascal Dartigalongue founded the first Maison d'Armagnac in Nogaro, the heart of the Bas Armagnac region. In 1870 son Joseph acquired a large vineyard in Salles d'Armagnac near Nogaro.

In 1978 great grandson Pierre Dartigalongue created his Museum in Nogaro which houses all the archives of Maison D'Armagnac, including all correspondence since 1838 and a fascinating collection of Vieux Armagnacs in their original bottles, dated 1829, 1848, 1852, 1870, and 1900.

In 2010, Françoise Dartigalongue, fifth generation producer, then the head of the company, convinced her niece Virginie’s husband, Benoit Hillion, to leave his job as an agronomist in Paris to settle in Nogaro and take over the business.

Seduced by the history of the House and by the enthusiasm and optimism of Françoise, Benoit quickly took over and boosted the development of the Maison. Importer Notes
