Janneau 5 Years Old Grand Armagnac

NV

In a Nutshell

Classic Armagnac - the spicier sister to Cognac.

Tasting Notes

Strong aromas of vanilla and plums with a pleasant subtle taste of burned barrels due to the ageing in new Limousin oak casks. Surprisingly smooth.

Production Notes

The white wines are sourced from the Ugni Blanc grape variety from the best vineyards of Bas Armagnac (sandy soils) and Ténarèze (clay and chalky soils). The Double Distillation in pot still has the great advantage of extracting from the wine all its aromatic qualities and the resulting “eaux-de-vie” clearly distinguish themselves by their great finesse and roundness, fruity nose and an earlier more balanced and complete maturation. With this method only the heart of the distillate is kept and matured in beautiful Limousin oak casks. In the ancient cellars of the Maison, the ‘eaux-de-vie’ are aged separately per cru of origin and year of distillation and bottled once the perfect ageing in casks has been achieved. Bottling takes place at Janneau, in Condom, and the minimum ageing in casks is clearly indicated on the label.

Producer - Janneau
