Located in the Landes in the town of Arthez-d'Armagnac, Domaine Del Cassou produces Bas-Armagnac exclusively from the Baco grape variety. Some parcels of the vineyard are more than a century old. In order to preserve as much as possible the naturally fruity character of its Armagnacs, the domain uses only red oak barrels used for maturation. Perfectly embodying the "house spirit" and even in the very delicate woodiness of its finish, this 1987 vintage version is full of fruit, whether fresh, dark, exotic or even dry.
Profile: racy, the first nose is marked by citrus fruits and fresh tobacco. When aired, it becomes floral (linden) and herbaceous. Black and exotic fruits nicely punctuate the aromatic palette. Lively, the palate is of great floral and fruity elegance (white grape, guava). Very finely woody, the finish is marked by notes of beeswax, fig and pink berries.
