Castarède – XO 20 ans d’âge – Bas-Armagnac

Castarède – XO 20 ans d’âge – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is fruity, gourmand and quite elegant. It reveals notes of fruit in syrup, rancio and caramel associated with fine notes of candied clementine, lemon marmalade as well as slight notes of spices and almond. The palate is fruity, gourmand, fat, round, suave, well-balanced, elegant, charming and well made. Beautiful matter. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of stewed white fruits (apple, pear, a touch of nectarine) associated with fine notes of clementine, discreet notes of zest as well as slight notes of caramel, honey, almond / walnut and a fine touch of cedar wood / hint of vanilla. Good length and persistence with a slight note of alcohol on the aftertaste.
