Marquis de Montesquiou - Extra OldXO Armagnac
The selection of the eaux-de-vie creates an excellent harmony with the compounds of the wood that we have extracted over many years. The deep rancio operates with this excellent harmony.
Extra Old Armagnac is a powerful and mature Armagnac, composed of extensively maturated and respectful eaux-de-vie, all having at least 10 years of maturation. A much longer ageing process than other Armagnacs, allowing the extraction of an exceptionally rich and complex range of aromas delivered by the oak casks.
The colour is intense mahogany.
The nose is the expression of the typical rancio of aged eaux-de-vie Bouquet: melted but present is wood, vanilla, prune, nuts, fruity with cherry & coconut and spices such as cinnamon.
The palate is very smooth and tasty with lots of structure, well balanced, perfect alliance between wood & fruit.
