    Bas Armagnac 10 y.o., Baron de Sigognac, 40% vol, 70cl

    AR06

    The Guasch family have been in Gascony since the 12th century. They have owned the château at Bordeneuve since 1974 and are one of the region’s largest courtier and negociant operations. Today the father-and-son team of Jean-Claude and Thomas look after viticulture, vinification and distillation.

     

    Bordeneuve has 30 hectares dedicated to vineyards; 75% are planted with ugni blanc and the rest with baco. The vineyards are superbly situated on very fine clay-sand soils, which are high in acidity and in some places mixed with iron, hence the name sables fauves or tawny sands. Boulbène topsoil, the characteristic regional sediment, is rich in limestone. The domaine is almost unique in the region as all its production is distilled into armagnac instead of wine.

     

    After a minimum of 10 years in barrel this brandy has an attractive nose with discernible hints of vanilla, cinnamon and candied orange. Very round and full in the mouth; earthy with notes of dried fruit and toffee yet showing floral, woody and spicy notes. A long well balanced finish with hints of almonds and vanilla.

  • Château de Beaulon V.S.O.P., Folle Blanche, 7 y.o. Single Estate Cognac, 40% vol, 70cl

    Château de Beaulon V.S.O.P., Folle Blanche, 7 y.o. Single Estate Cognac, 40% vol, 70cl

    CG11

    The Chateau was built by the “de Vinsons” family in 1480 during the reign of King Louis XIV. At the dawn of the renaissance period Beaulon’s architectural style was still flamboyantly gothic.

     

    The vineyards of the château cover some 90 hectares.  A deliberate and judicious choice of 9 grape varieties set the Château de Beaulon vineyards apart. Contrary to modern trends, Beaulon has remained firm to the region’s traditional 16th century vine stocks : Folle Blanche, Colombard and Montils for its Cognac.

     

    The fertiliser used on the land is natural and organically based.

     

    This V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale) is a 7 year old Cognac – the minimum ageing period for V.S.O.P. is 4 years. It is made from 100% Folle Blanche.

     

    The appearance is amber with glints of warm gold. The nose is markedly Folle Blanche, very floral with a touch of geranium, candied orange and broom. The palate is very fruity, with angelica and raisin flavours showing through. It is perfectly balanced, round with a long finish – excellent character rarely found in a cognac of this age.


    Delicious as a long drink with tonic water or simply ‘on the rocks’.

    Very supple on the nose dominated by impressions of vanilla and reminiscent of brioche. Quite velvety on the palate at the start followed by flavours of violets, prunes, and vanilla. A gentle but long finish evokes liquorice, cinnamon and dried fruit.
