CHATEAU DE LA BEROJE 1995 Armagnac, Version Française by LMDW 700ml 42% abv 

Abour Chateau de La Béroje

Château de La Béroje is a name that stands for tradition and quality in the Armagnac world. Located in the Bas Armagnac region, this estate has been a beacon of excellence for years. Currently managed by Raymond Crombez de Montmort, the estate has maintained its commitment to traditional Armagnac production methods, setting it apart in an industry often dominated by larger Cognac houses.

What makes Château de La Béroje truly unique is its dedication to overseeing every stage of production, from grape harvest to bottling. This hands-on approach ensures that each bottle that leaves the estate is a true representation of their commitment to quality. The Armagnacs are produced solely from grapes grown in La Béroje's vineyards, adding an extra layer of authenticity and distinctiveness to their products.

The estate employs a single, continuous distillation process in a copper still. This traditional method captures the delicate aromas of the terroir, making each sip a journey through the rich landscape of the Bas Armagnac region. The aging process is another area where La Béroje shines. Their Armagnacs are aged in oak barrels housed in an 18th-century barrel-room. The interaction between the wood and the spirit adds complexity, enriching the brandy with tannin, vanilla fragrances, and a hint of spice.

As time passes, the Armagnac undergoes a transformation. It loses its initial bite, becoming smoother and taking on a golden hue. The estate's Armagnacs reach their aromatic peak at around 30 years, offering a sublime blend of vanilla, nuts, vine blossom, prunes, and candied apricot, among other notes.


Color: sustained copper
Nose: fine, smooth. Remarkable fruity freshness (orange, apricot, mango) and at the same time balsamic (cedar pine), the first nose is extremely deep. When aired, chocolate and spicy flavors (cinnamon, ginger) give it a lot of class while red (raspberry, strawberry) and black (blackberry, cherry) fruits enhance the fruity dimension of the aromatic palette. Gradually, beeswax and quince accompany heady flowers (freesia, hyacinth, peony).
Palate: elegant, smooth. On the palate, a fine film of soot covers the aromatic palette. However, it flies very quickly to pieces. Thus, chocolate, blood oranges and toffee evolve the mid-palate towards tones reminiscent of taffeta. In the aftertaste, ginger, chocolate chips and heather honey constitute a particularly harmonious taste. Notes of cherry and toasted nuts.
Overall: long, racy. Closely linked to the palate, the start of the finish is powdery (cocoa, coffee) and slightly earthy. Over time, a hint of camphor energizes a finish that evokes a slightly burnt apricot tart. Delicious. In retro-olfaction, dried fruits (prune, quince) and caramelized rhubarb precede an empty glass whose dry extracts are full of spices (pepper, cloves) and root scents (gentian, ginseng).
