Laberdolive 1979  – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is nicely built and offers a beautiful suavity, complexity as well as a very beautiful finesse. It reveals notes of dried grape puree and slight notes of candied lemon, candied orange zests associated with hints of rancio, a discreet hint of almond, macadamia nut, honey as well as a hint of nutmeg, leather, slight hints of spices and a very discreet/imperceptible hint of vanilla. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced, elegant, racy, supple and offers a very beautiful mineral frame, finesse, suavity, fat as well as richness. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of fresh white fruits (peach/nectarine) and hints of litchi, lemon, mandarin associated with a discreet hint of rancio as well as a subtle hint of caramelization and a woody hint on the finish. Beautiful persistence and aftertaste, with slight hints of caramelization. Remarkable persistence!
