750 mL Bottle
Deep amber with orange reflections. Complex nose where chocolate, honey, maple, vanilla, orange and almond vie for attention. Rich, round mouthfeel, with plenty of glycerin and fat. Chocolate notes are gently spiced by clove and pepper on the very long finish.
All of the Armagnac in this remarkable blend from Bacco and Ugni Blanc grapes was produced in 1979, a stellar year in the Grand Bas Armagnac. New to the market, this extraordinary Armagnac received a Double Gold Medal at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and was named the “Best of Show Brandy.”
Making Armagnac is labor intensive, but it is a labor of love. Our first task after purchasing Domaine Loujan was to update the vinification facilities. While the vinification has remained traditional, the modernized facilities make possible a level of hygiene previously unattainable. The wine now ferments in newly lined concrete tanks with stainless steel doors and other modern features. Early on, we made the decision that we would ferment using only the yeasts naturally found in the Domaine’s grapes. It brings a degree of uncertainty into the fermentation process, but it rewards us with a very unique and flavorful product.
