Chateau du Busca XO No. 1 Tenareze Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1020469 90-95 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Superb/Highly Recommended* Understated floral scents of jasmine and honeysuckle along with aromas of dried yellow fruit, buttered almonds and orange blossom are discovered in the nose. The palate entry is lusciously oily, semisweet and buttery while the midpalate stage highlights the oak, cocoa, black tea and walnut paste. Finishes gracefully, semisweet, and tightly structured.

K&L Notes

Busca X.O. derives its perfect balance from traditional wine making methods and long, patient aging in black casks. Color: An orange-golden hue. Nose: Candied orange and vanilla. Palate: Long and smooth, with a very mellow woodiness. Distilled for 300 years in the oldest distillery in Gascony, Château du Busca-Maniban armagnacs continue to be produced at the property according to traditional methods. The brandy is aged in oak barrels in the castle cellars. "The clay and limestone soil in Ténarèze is exactly the same as in Cognac's top growing regions of Grande Champagne where Ugni Blanc (grapes) reign. Armagnac from Ténarèze ages longer, and, in my opinion, better." -Alain Royer 4 STARS - F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal "Finishes gracefully, semisweet, and tightly structured. Elegance in a glass.
