A powerful expression, fresh and fruit-driven on the nose. Hints of liquorice…
Castarede 1987 Bas Armagnac
One of the great producers of Armagnac. Sadly, in their infinite wisdom, they didn’t put a bottling date on the bottle. Because, believe it or not, this was bottled in 2016. Thus making it a whopping 29 years of age.
Made from Bacco, Colombard, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc grape varieties and matured in dark, hand split Monlezun oak, Armagnacs are often seen as the more rustic cousin of Cognac.
Official notes read, “This 1987 vintage is a powerful expression, fresh and fruit-driven on the nose. Hints of liquorice as well”.
