ADVICE FROM OUR CELLAR MASTER
A snifter is the glass of preference to truly discern the subtle aromas inherent in our Armagnacs. Pour a little room-temperature Armagnac in a glass and contemplate its shimmering colours. This is the initial indication of the ageing afforded to our products.
Bring the glass to your nose and gently inhale the first perfumes (First Nose). This is the first contact, sometimes powerful yet never aggressive.
Swirl the Armagnac around the bowl to bring out the most secret of notes, which require more time in which to blossom.
Now comes the moment to take a sip of Armagnac, preparing the taste-buds for the explosion of flavours to follow.
Once the glass is drained, one has the impression of having been on a long trip to flavour town. Don't forget to breathe in the bottom of the glass which will further reveal yet more intense notes of the infinite richness, becoming only of an Armagnac of the highest quality.
