Armagnac de Montal – XO – Bas-Armagnac

Armagnac de Montal – XO – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is powerful, aromatic and offers a fine freshness / juiciness. It reveals notes of quince, kumquat, dried lime zest, dried apple skin and small dried orange combined with small touches of rancio as well as a very discreet hint of caramel and grilled oak (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fine mineral frame, a fine juiciness, a nice gourmandise, a fine unctuosity as well as a small dynamism. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of caramelized orange, caramel pear and small touches of love apple, candied lemon, fleshy / ripe quince combined with hints of Zante currant, apricot, pâtisseries / caramelization as well as fine touches of cedar and spices. Good length.
