Armagnac from the Bas region is considered to have the most finesse, also tending to yield spirits that are very supple in their youth. Plantings are mostly Bacco and Ugni Blanc. The Northwestern portion of the Bas-Armagnac (known casually as the Grand Bas Armagnac) has a concentration of quality producers, especially in the department of Les Landes.Deep polished copper colour. Exudes sweet aromas of dates, toffee apple, vanilla, chocolate and nutmeg. The palate is full bodied, plush and round with medium dry flavours of dates, cocoa and soft spice perfectly counterpointed by drying and slightly grippy tannins. Dried apricot, nutmeg and clove aftertaste reverberates with surprising length, echoing back minutes after the final sip.
