Jean Cavé 1987 – Bas-Armagnac

Jean Cavé 1987 – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is fine, slightly tight and slightly powerful (in the background). It reveals slight notes of ripe white fruits (nectarine, discreet hint of apple) and hints of ripe citrus associated with a slight hint of caramel and cane sugar, a slight woody hint as well as a slight hint of Sichuan pepper and a discreet hint of spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, very slightly tight, slightly powerful and offers freshness, dynamism, deepness, a slight acid frame, a beautiful roundness, a beautiful fat, a slight fleshy as well as gourmandise. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of ripe green apple and slight notes of white nectarine associated with a very discreet hint of ripe lemon zests, coffee (in the background) as well as a subtle hint of gray pepper, hints of spices and a very discreet hint of cedar.
