In 1974, Francis Darroze founded his business as a trader and producer of vintage Bas-Armagnacs relying on his many years of experience, tasting, and visits to the ageing cellars of Bas-Armagnac, the sub-region of Armagnac where the most rich, complex and interesting spirits are produced. His initial idea was simple: to create awareness of the region and its extraordinarily varied wine-producing soils, rich and marked by history, while respecting the originality and typical nature of each estate. Since then he has intensified his search for the best vineyards, the best soils of Bas-Armagnac. His idea paid off and he rapidly acquired a national and international reputation for quality and integrity
"One has never really tried an armagnac until trying those of Francis Darroze" - Robert Parker, world famous wine critic.
Clear, golden amber. The bouquet is aromatic and refined with green pear skin, new leather and rounding spicy olive oil with cleansing whiffs of eucalyptus and cedarwood. The palate shows leathery cinnamon spiced oak with orchard fruit ripeness and honeysuckle floral complexity. Fabulously rich and rounded with balanced oak influence. Floral rose and violet notes emerge in the delicately spiced pear and soft oak finish.
