Tasting note

Nose

Juicy peaches, young apples and grapes transitioning to more tropical fruit. A nice floral aroma also puffs out of the glass. If the glass stands for a while, the sultanas come into their own nicely and the aroma becomes a little more aged.

Taste

Believe it or not, but candied pineapple was mentioned and when we heard it, we couldn't taste anything else at first. Later also some sweeter fruit like mango, but alongside this thick fruit character, there is also a tasty nutty flavour of toasted walnuts.

Finish

Complex and fruity sweet.

The distillery

The Domaine de Baraillon is located just outside Lannemaignan in the Bas-Armagnac. The pretty little estate is surrounded by sunflower, maize and wheat fields and, of course, vineyards. Driving past the Domaine, you wouldn't even know that Armagnac is produced here, were it not for a large barrel on the side of the road with their name written on it. 

Claverie's Armagnacs are a combination of two properties: 4 hectares owned by Patriach Paul's sister in Le Freche and 12 hectares around his house. All vineyards are full of the three major grape varieties, Baco, Colombard and Ugni Blanc. Until 2012 they used the Loubere distillery in Labastide d'Armagnac, but in 2012 they bought their own stills in which they now turn their wines into spirits. The fresh eau de vie normally goes into 5,000-litre casks before being transferred to smaller barrels. Both new and old barrels are used for this purpose. The barrels are regularly aerated to promote oxidation. The oldest stocks date back to the late 19th century and it occasionally seems as if time has stood still at Domaine de Baraillon. Tradition and quality are therefore highly valued by the family.
