"I find a wonderfully fruity background. Grapes. Lots of grapes. Sweet, slightly acidic and oxidised almondy white wine, which is very much in line with what I would expect from a Pineau des Charantes (which in simple terms is the precursor to Armagnac). I guess I can say that this makes sense considering the 8 years in Armagnac barrels. Stone fruits are also present, with heavy weight on the peach and apricot notes. This nose surprises me, confuses me and makes sense all at the same time…I think I need to add apples in here somewhere"
