Product Description

LCBO# 733013

700 mL.

 

In Armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, Baron de Sigognac took

 

all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. Fascinated by the mystery surrounding

 

the way Armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces fashioned...

 

On these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. The seconds

 

had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour

 

hand marked the centuries.

 

Baron de Sigognac had found the core of the mystery that is Armagnac…

 

The legend adds that, with time, Baron de Sigognac came to trust only his

 

palate for telling the age of an Armagnac. The clocks were left unwound.

 

Baron Sigognac himself had become the memory of his Armagnacs.

 

Presentation:

 

70 cl Cognacaise bottle.

 

Terroir:

 

Tawny sandy soils

 

Grape Varieties: Ugni Blanc ou Baco.

 

Distillation: Armagnac type continuous still.

 

Ageing in French oak barrels from the Limousin forest.

 

Tasting Notes:

 

Beautiful yellow-orange gold colour featuring copper

 

highlights.

 

The nose brings to mind caramelised cane sugar as well as

 

pleasing notes of roasted cocoa bean.

 

Extremely smooth on the palate with a delicate opening

 

gambit.

 

The middle is mellow, subtle and wonderfully elegant,

 

evoking crystalised exotic fruits and lingering, gentle

 

liquorice.

 

The finish is long and harmonious, maintaing the presence

 

of cane sugar, cocoa and exotic fruit right to the end.
