Golden robe with copper tints. Charming nose with leather notes which reflect its old age, and some touches of vanilla. Smooth in the mouth it is round but spicy, with very harmonious tanins and perfectly melt wood flavours. Well balanced with no acidity, this armagnac is voluptuous with an exceptional structure.
