Château de Pellehaut – Ugni Blanc 1989 – Armagnac

The nose is fruity, structured, racy and offers power as well as a fine concentration. It reveals notes of orangette, dry peach, small notes of kumquat associated with a touch of quenette, dry lime, toasted almond as well as fine hints of rancio, Timut pepper, cocoa, discreet hints of grilled/smoke. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky, elegant, racy and offers suavity, a very fine unctuous sensation, dynamism as well as a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this Armagnac expresses notes of orange, crystallized mandarine, small notes of cooked peach/tarte Tatin associated with fine touches of crème brule, pastries, very fine hints of vanilla, mild tobacco as well as a very discreet hint of nutmeg and almond. Good length and persistence.
