Marie Duffau Napoleon Bas Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1014550 90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rich brown sugar is complemented by toasty baking spice onnose and palate. Each sip trails off into vanilla bean and cocoa powder, plus a final dusting of hot spices. *Best Buy* (KN) Inner quote mark (12/2021)


Outer quote mark Rather dark in color for a six-year-old, Marie Duffau Napoléon is almost nut brown. Soft, warm orange aromas and sweet, round flavors of milk chocolate, sponge cake, and a spicy, pithy finish. Solid and affordable for such a young Armagnac. (JW) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

For the money, I can't think of a better deal in Armagnac than the Marie Duffau 'Napoleon'. This is a delicious brandy that is smooth and textured with great flavor, rich fruit and a rounded finish that is very easy to like and drink. A minimum of 6 years old and is typically a blend of mostly Ugni blanc, some Baco, and a little Colombard and Folle Blanche. Try a bottle, it's great.

The easy drinking Marie Duffau Armagnacs have brought more people into this category than almost any other product. This is the country's best selling Armagnac and with good reason. If you're looking for round soft and supple this is about as good at anything at this price.

The Marie Duffau was my introduction to Armagnac. I'd been drinking a lot of bourbon at the time and was thrilled to discover that Armagnac is made very similarly, just with grapes! The Marie Duffau has been a staple on my bar ever since because it is FANTASTIC in cocktails. Try it in a Sidecar with some fresh pineapple and basil - the Duffeau's notes of caramelized pineapple, barrel spice, and vanilla will really pop!

I have been hooked to this Armagnac ever since working for K&L. Without going into details, the flavor is complex, spicy and nutty. A great nightcap on cool evenings! The Marie Duffau Napoleon is also the most affortable Armagnac in our line-up. A must try!
