A Bas-Armagnac aged for 21 years in the cellars of the Gers Department, selected by Cuspid for its authentic character and organoleptic qualities typical of the best Bas Armagnacs. A complex balance of fruity accents and spicier aromas that define it as a harmonious spirit, unforgettable with an ice cube, even as an aperitif.
Domaine Le Clos des Saveurs
Monsieur Artiguelongue lives in Arblade-le-Haut near Auch in the Gers in Gascony and specializes in the refinement of Armagnac supported by the experience of master cellarman.
The blend used for this production is a melange of Baco and Ugni-Blanc. The soil is made up of siliceous clays, poor in limestone, rich in sands of iron oxides which color the countryside of this area in a characteristic red.
The alembic used for the production of this brandy takes the name of “Armagnacais”, built in copper since it is not affected by the acids of the wine. It is a continuous distillation alembic without review. Several factors distinguish Armagnac from Cognac.
The grapes of the wines used to produce Armagnac grow on a mainly sandy soil. The resulting brandy is then aged in the black oak of the region, giving it a naturally dark colour.
