Armagnac de Montal – XO – Bas-Armagnac

(40%) The nose offers power, a certain intensity, a fine grain as well as a fine freshness. It reveals notes of quince, crushed apple, dried lime zest and small notes of dried apple skin associated with small touches of caramel plum, kumquat, cigar as well as a very discreet hint of caramelization, toasted hazelnut, toasted oak (in the background) and a very discreet hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fine mineral structure, freshness, a fine juiciness, a beautiful finesse of the guideline, gourmandize, unctuosity as well as a small dynamism. On the palate, this Armagnac expresses notes of caramelized orange, caramelized pear and small notes of caramel apple associated with touches of candied citron, candied lemon, as well as hints of Zante currant, toffee, pâtisseries / caramelization, slight touches of cedar, orange blossom and sweet spices / nutmeg. Good length.
