Each thousandth has its own personality that is found in the tasting where complex scents such as aromas of pastry, dried fruits, more or less sweet notes and power or lightness are won. Bas-Armagnac millesimati are products of the distillation of wines obtained from Baco Blanc and Ugni blanc grapes. Baco Blanc, a variety particularly suitable for red sands in the area, brings balance, relief and aromas of ripe fruits to the vine after a long aging while Ugni Blanc is more suitable for young Armagnac, in which the variety of the vine does not predomi dominate the organoleptic characteristics of the product but participates in its complexity. The distillation technique and the period of aging in wood, is decisive for its quality and for having an optimal aromatic evolution of the distillate.
