Description

Armagnac is the oldest eau-de-vie in France: the first evidence of its use dates back to the year 1310, when Master Vital Dufour extolled in Latin the 40 virtues of this "Aygue Ardente" (eau-de-vie) in his book “To keep healthy and stay in good shape” which was found in the Vatican archives! Until the end of the 18th century, apothecaries offered Armagnac, attributing to it therapeutic virtues...

The Baco grape variety is particularly adapted to the sandy soils of Bas-Armagnac where it offers ample, intense eaux-de-vie with great character but which will require prolonged aging. Bottled in 2022 the 2005 Baco is a richly styled Armagnac. It's smooth and exotic with caramelised tropical fruit notes.
