THE STRENGTH OF ELEGANCE
Our Armagnac is aged in sweet wine cask which gives it smoothness and character.
In order to preserve its personality, no blends are being performed; it thus maintains its natural alcohol degree straight from the barrel. This brandy has not been chill filtrated and comes from a single barrel. Vintage available at request.
Gimet Armagnac 1978 is made from white wine distilled in traditional Armagnac copper stills that are nearly a hundred years old. Aged in sweet wine cask, bottled at cask strength from a single barrel, non-chill filtered, with numbered bottles. Only 450 bottles were produced.
Gimet Armagnac 1978 is non-blended, this retains the natural alcohol volume from the barrel therefore Gimet is bottled at cask strength. Non-chill filtered in order to preserve its organoleptic characteristics; this lack of filtration can lead to residual elements in the bottle, which is natural.
Amber with golden hues.
The nose is marked by vegetable and floral aromas followed by cocoa notes.
At first the palate agrees with the nose. Notes of wax, citrus and flowers. Add few drops of water to open up notes of citrus fruit, white chocolate and cocoa pod.
Serving suggestion: In general Armagnac should air out for at least one hour before tasting. Armagnac Gimet comes with a vacuum pipette, add few drops of water and serve at room temperature.
