For crafting this delicate blend, our Maitre de Chai has selected several armagnacs between 50 to 60 years old. The younger lending the fruited aroma, the older confering elegance and the « rancio » of long aging.
It’s very long aging produced a lot of gustatory and aromatic richness with a very delicate complexity on the palate followed by a subtle finish.
This fantastic elixir will make drinkers feel obliged to smell for a long time and sip in small doses, while discovering an aromatic complexity that is rarely found in any spirit.
The four traditional grapes, Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc, Baco, and Colombard, go into the base wine for our 25 Years old blend. Bottled exclusively from a dumping of 20 barrels or less, made of the tight-grained, rich in tannins and deeply colored oak.
CYRANO 25 has been drawn from barrels that have aged from 25 to 40 years.
The quality of this blend reflects the balance between the spirit’s strength and the aging time in French oak barrels, giving a very fine armagnac with a quite exceptional after taste. Elegant on the nose, it is in the mouth that CYRANO 25 will unveil all of its complexity.
Is our eXtra Old blend made up of Armagnacs that have been aged for at least 8 years. XO is perfect for mixing and it will delight those that are looking for a rich and smooth spirit.
We make XO in small batches, patiently aged in the deepest charred barrels and bottled at 84 proof to maintain our approach to big flavor. It’s a rather woody blend, with spicy aromas, complex but remains round. This rich Armagnac brings oak and leather together with slightly sweet notes of flower and fruit.
We happen to use the highest quality grapes. It’s what gives you that unique spicy, smooth flavor that changes your cocktails forever.
A crisp and clear, White/Blanche Armagnac of finest quality, of which we nurse each step of the process, right from where the grapes are born, until we bottle.
Coming from the same Armagnac “terroir”, ROXANE benefits from 700 hundred years of “savoir-faire”. The major difference with the traditional Brown-colored Armagnac is that ROXANE is young, un-aged, and a clear spirit full of fruit and freshness. Never compromised by barrels, She is the true essence of Armagnac.
