Domaine D’Esperance 10 Year Bas-Armagnac

$199.98

This XO bottling is produced from the baco 22A grape, though the estate grows other varietals. It is aged initially in new Gascon oak for one year and then transferred to used Gascon oak for the remainder of the aging process. The Armagnac is made from a blend of four different vintages with the youngest being 10 years old. As with all Domaine d’Esperance 10 Armagnac, it is made with no additives– no sugar, no boisé, and no caramel.

Blend of at least 4 different vintages, the youngest of which has aged at least 10 years in barrels made of Gascon pedunculated oak. It has a beautiful copper color, a wide range of aromas (prune, orange, vanilla), and a big complexity in the mouth.​
The Gason oak provides Domaine D’esperance XO 10 Year Old Bas Armagnac with a deep, copper color, along with an aroma of apples, cinnamon, and orange blossom honey. Notes of caramel, vanilla, and nutmeg dominate the palate and give way to hints of jasmine, poached pears, and butterscotch.

Grape- varieties: Baco 22 A and Folle-Blanche

Vinification: Traditional and natural vinification. The wine is very low in alcohol and is distilled quickly after the end of fermentation.

Distillation: With a continuous traditional still, at a low degree (52/54%). To retain most of the primary wine flavors.
