1973 Marie Duffau Bas Armagnac $110.00

Marie Duffau uses only high quality fruit, harvested from the best soil of the Bas Armagnac. Does not use pesticides or fertilizers. A good use of grape varietals: 70% Ugni Blanc (give a good foundation), 20% Bacco (gives roundness), 5% Colombard (herbal aromas) and 5% Folle Blanche (floral notes). A particular slow single distillation process and distillation at low temperatures (around 52 to 58 degrees, which enables more flavors, fatty acids and character to remain in the spirit. Distilled in small batches and uses 10% Gascon oak to give good tannins, darker color and beautiful spice. The 1973 is 30 years old. Pale amber color with bright, old copper hues. Full, rich and fruity with notes of mild tobacco, citrus, spices and liquorice. Its finish is balanced and round, with a wealth of soft rancio.
