1988 Château de Salles Bas-Armagnac
Single Bottles (70cl) @ £75.00
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
Perhaps the roundest of all the Armagnacs from this producer, the 1988 is, typically, amber in colour with a nose including blanched almonds, vanilla and spice. Soft in the mouth with a lovely rich and rounded texture. Excellent length.

All Armagnacs from this estate

Ugni Blanc, Bocco
The eau de vie generally drips from the travelling alambic still at 56° alcohol. From there it goes into a vat to blend for several days before being pumped into barrels, most of which have been refurbished by the local cooper. After about four years, Armagnacs of the same vintage are blended together once again, then placed into older casks. Apart from an airing once every couple of years, they rest in the well-ventilated chai until bottling.
