Clear, mid golden amber.
Apple, pear and leather with a hint of varnish and lavender.
Apple and pear fruit dried with very light woody notes. So appley that its reminiscent of a young Calavados. Young but very elegant.
Long lingering stewed pear and spice. Delightfully not what you’d expect of an Armagnac.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
