This single vintage, single cask Armagnac from Domaine d'Aurensan is a thing of beauty! Bottled in November of 2020 after 30 years in casks it is showing splendidly. I hate to be unnecessarily hyperbolic, but my first tasting note is "divine." The Domaine consists of five hectares of vineyards on clay/limestone soils, and are now transitioning to organic and biodynamic farming. In the cellar and distillery they are similarly-minded, using only indigenous yeasts for fermentation, no sulfur, aged in local Gascogne oak barrels, and in the finished product, absolutely no additions, not even water. A whopping 65% is given up to the "Angel's share" bringing this down naturally to a 40.3% ABV. Notes of slow-roasted, cinnamon-crusted street cart nuts (in the best sense), baked apple, cedar box, dried figs and creme brûlée. Michelle DeWyngaert
