For a Very Superior Old Pale Armagnac (VSOP), the law requires a minimum ageing of 4 years. At Clos Martin, our VSOP Armagnac ages in oak barrels for at least 8 years before blending. The blend of Baco and Ugni-Blanc varieties makes this Armagnac perfectly full bodied with fruit, wood and mineral notes. It is perfect neat, as an after-dinner drink, or in cocktails such as a twist on Manhattan or Vieux Carré.
Clos Martin VSOP offers a touch of ginger and violet, typical of sandy soils, some delicate oak and a little dried fruit on the nose. Some elegant fruit and a clean lively finish.
