Tasting note

Nose

Juicy red grapes, cherries and even passion fruit enters the nose. Subtle, but deliciously fruity. More mature scents of dates, lavender and oak follow later.

Taste

Elegant and slightly sweet, juicy pears, freshly squeezed orange juice and strawberries spread across the tongue. Also a nutty character of nut cake filled with walnuts, hazelnuts, sultanas and dates with a pinch of cinnamon. 

Finish

In the aftertaste, also that lovely fruity flavour. Starting as fresh fruit and evaluating through to dried fruit.

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.
