Beautifully crafted Bas-Armagnac from Baron de Sigognac. The company owns one short column still which is almost a century old, and it produces around 50-60 casks a year.
Very supple with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, sweet vanilla notes and a lovely array of fresh flowers and orange peel. Rich and earthy with notes of conserves and peels, butterscotch, sweet spices, oak. A superb finish with marzipan, hazelnut and custard.
It works well with blue veined cheeses (Fourme, Roquefort), or with guinea fowl and fruit, duck breast with honey, cep mushroom omelette … Fruit based desserts: tarte tatin, pear charlotte, candied orange … chocolate desserts such as black forest gateau, chocolate mousse… The choice is yours!
