Darroze Vintage 1999 Bas-Armagnac Domaine de Salie au Frêche


49% ABV, 750 ml

Made from 100% Baco

One of our favorite Negociants in the Armagnac world is Francis Darroze. His specialty is buying brandy from small producers scattered around Gascony, and finishing the brandy is his cellars. They are all bottled at cask strength, and bottled as vineyard designated, vintage-dated Armagnacs. Each one is a masterpiece.

The older Armagnacs are constructed from 100% Bacco, a grape known more for its bass, producing a full-bodied and “fat” Armagnac. The Bacco of Gascony is slowly being phased out—“hybrid” grapes like Bacco soon will no longer be allowed in the AOC region. 

Tasting Notes from the Producer

Beautiful brown color, golden tints. The nose is pungent, with fine aromas of dried fruits (hazelnut, almond), spices (nutmeg, licorice) and candied fruit (apricot, orange peel). In the mouth, the attack is clear, the tannins are enveloping. Beautiful aromatic complexity (spices, honey, mint). Long in the mouth.

Bottle Size: All bottles are 750ML unless otherwise noted.

21 and Over: Adult Signature Required
