Castarède 1977 – Bas-Armagnac

Castarède 1977 – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is gourmand, quite elegant and offers a slight straightness. It reveals notes of caramel and crème brulée associated with slight notes of candied orange, dried zests as well as touches of grilled oak, almond and a subtle hint of cacao (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, relatively fleshy and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a beautiful gourmandise, finesse, straightness, a small austere side as well as a beautiful matter. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of caramelized pear, orange marmelade and small notes of candied lemon zests associated with touches of candied white fruits, grilled oak, cacao/bitter dark chocolate, rancio, nougatine/crème brulée as well as a subtle hint of tonka bean (on the finish) and an imperceptible hint of white pepper (in the background). Good length. There is a slight hint of grilled oak on the persistence.
