1980 DOMAINE DE BUSQUET à Labastide d'Armagnac 48.70 % Brown colour with golden tints. The nose is very rich in flavours : fruits (prune and fig), spices (cinnamon and gingerbread) and rancio (walnut). Superb. On the palate, the tannins are silky and round. This Armagnac is very rich and complex, with an incredible length in the palate. Great Bas Armagnac.

Although Armagnac is the oldest brandy distilled in France it has taken a back row seat to its more famous cousin Cognac. Not to be confused with Cognac (to the North of Bordeaux,) Armagnac lies between the Adour and Garonne rivers in the foothills of the Pyrenees.

Armagnac was never produced in the same vast quantities that Cognac has been produced and as such, was and continues to be produced by mainly smaller, family-owned producers rather than the ‘big players’ in Cognac.

There are ten different grape varieties used in the production of Armagnac, but four grape varieties in particular provide the backbone for the majority of Armagnacs. Always blended, the four main grape varieties are Baco 22A, Colombard, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc.
