Dartigalongue Bas Armagnac Hors d'Age
|France, Armagnac, Bas-Armagnac
Hors d'Age in Armagnac has to be aged for a minimum of 10 years. Dartigalongue ages its Hors d'Age for 15 years. Deep amber color, scents of baked apple, butter and black oak. The mouth is vibrant and generous, featuring again the baked apples, the oak and then some toffee and vanilla with some hints of tobacco toward the end. The finish is long, fat and silky.
This shows a rich amber-brown hue, offering warm aromas and flavors of prunes, dark chocolate, espresso and baking spices. Dry rather than sweet, with a soft feel and brisk alcohol, this would be a good complement to savory as well as sweet dishes.
