Tariquet Bas Armagnac Classique Armagnac 750ml (VS)

SKU #1054028

This is our newest Armagnac and it's going to be our best deal on brandy of any kind. It is outrageously smooth and supple, to the point that I can't imagine anyone truly not enjoying it. The fruit is all handpicked and the Grassa family has been making it in a pot still since 1911. It spends only three years in barrel, which seems impossible when you feel its velvety texture in your mouth. The aromas are very delicate with dried apricots and caramel sifting gently in. The palate is lush with rich barrel flavors of baking spice. The finish has gobs of fruit, to the point that you'd think this is Cognac, not the normally spicy Armagnac. Made of 60% Ugni Blanc and 40% Baco, I'm expecting this bottle to fly of the shelf once people taste it. It's such a deal. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

Nose is predominantly honey and apricot, no sharpness at all. Palate is flavors of burnt caramel and spices, with a very smooth prominent finish (and aftertaste) of red grape/strawberry/raspberry. The finish is as mellow as some very aged single malts, which I think is pretty remarkable for such a young brandy. The price makes me think there's something to that meme going around lately that cognac is highly overrated, leading to premium prices for an often mediocre product.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
