Baron de Sigognac 10 Year Old Armagnac
This Armagnac has an attractive nose with discernible hints of vanilla, cinnamon and candied orange. Round and full in the mouth; earthy with notes of dried fruit and toffee yet showing floral, woody and spicy notes. A long well balanced finish.
"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 so well,
he had some very strange timepieces made. 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 of Armagnac ageing : time and patience… The legend adds that, with time, Baron de Sigognac who had thoroughly separated each harvest in different casks took first the idea of selling his brandies as genuine vintaged Armagnacs."
