Marquis de Montesquiou – Extra-Old – Armagnac

Marquis de Montesquiou – Extra-Old – Armagnac

The nose is aromatic and offers power, intensity and finesse. It reveals notes of Zante currant, dried flowers and dried orange zests associated with oaky / roasted touches, gray pepper, candied orange / crystallized clementine as well as a hint of caramel/rancio, nutmeg and a very discreet hint of chocolate. The palate is fruity, straight and offers a small tension, gourmandise, a good balance, precision, a very slight unctuosity as well as a very fine grain. On the palate, this Armagnac expresses notes of Zante currant, marmalade and dried orange combined with hints of rancio as well as a discreet hint of apricot, dried fig, caramel and spices. Good length. There is a very discreet hint of coffee / cocoa on the finish. The finish is beautifully suave. There are hints of vanilla on the finish / persistence (brings gourmandise). Beautiful persistence.
