The Guasch family has experience of making Cognanc that dates back as far back as the 12th century and their vineyards of Ugni Blanc and Baceo are dedicated exclusively to producing Bas Armagnac.
Made in small batches, the resulting Armagnac is aged for 20 years and has charming, rose-garden floral notes that develop into rich spices and prunes on the finish.
You’d be amazed what can go on inside an oak barrel over a 20 year period. In Armagnac, it can partake in a mystical transformation of acidic, distilled wine into decadent and floral amber nectar, such as this.
Alter Ego: Bananaman; by day, Eric is an unassuming kinda guy but, when fed the right ingredients, he can transform into a heroic, fruity character. Baron de Sigognac’s transformation takes slightly longer than Eric’s, but luckily we’re very patient.
