Château de Laubade – 1979 Brut de fût – Bas-Armagnac

(Bottled in November 2019) The nose is fruity, powerful, racy and offers a fine freshness, a very fine grain as well as elegance. It reveals notes of quince, dried zest and small notes of nectarine associated with fine touches of crushed pear, crystallized citrus zest as well as hints of caramelization, tobacco and discreet hints of pepper Cuben. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, fat, suavity, a small freshness, tension as well as a fine tannic sensation. On the palate, this Armagnac expresses notes of caramelized mandarin, caramelized kumquat and small notes of quince associated with fine touches of peach flowers, slight hints of caramel, pâtisseries, crème brûlée as well as a subtle hint of vanilla and an imperceptible hint of coconut (in the background). Good length.
