Bas Armagnac, Gascony, France- A blend of Bas Armagnacs aged 6 to 12 years from the award-winning Ch de Laubade. Fragrant aromas of violets, nougat and vanilla lead to a rich palate of bittersweet chocolate, spice and violet. Long, warm finish.
Geek Notes: the county of Armagnac sits at the foothills of the Pyrenees in Southern France and is well known for its foie gras in addition to the wonderful brandy that has brought international attention to the region since the 15th century.
Ever wonder what VSOP means? Very Superior Old Pale, which designates a blend in which the youngest brandy is stored for at least four years in a cask.
