Tech Note

From the moment it leaves the still the colourless, crystal-clear eau de vie is stored in seasoned 400 litre oak casks called “pièces”.

This assemblage at 42 ° is made up of 5 vintages: 1979, 1983, 1986, 1992, and 1994. These Vintages were selected for their quality and their pairing abilities. Their blending gives a unique and remarkable assemblage by its finesse, its delicacy and its length on the palate

Tasting Note

The nose is very fine and very expressive, it gives off notes of white flowers, honey, blond tobacco, and spices. After a few minutes of aeration subtle hints of rancio (dry fruits) and leather appear.

On the palate, the attack is frank but the alcohol is perfectly integrated. The silky tannins develop and reveal notes of candied fruit, with a beautiful freshness. The length in the mouth is remarkable, the delicate finish opens on notes of liquorice, and slightly smoked. A spirit that has reached its peak!
