Jean Cavé 1971 – Bas-Armagnac

Jean Cavé 1971 – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is fruity, relatively powerful and offers a certain richness. It reveals slight notes of candied orange and a hint of ripe peach associated with a discreet hint of caramel, toasted oak, vanilla as well as a subtle hint of candied lemon and a hint of rancio. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers gourmandise, fat, suavity, a beautiful richness, roundness, a certain straightness, a slight freshness (in the background) as well as a small « frank » side. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of dried grape puree and candied zests orange associated with hints of caramel, brown sugar as well as a discreet hint of chocolate and a woody hint. Good length and beautiful persistence. The aftertaste is relatively powerful.
