Review #2128 | Armagnac Review #102
Distiller: Cheateau de Leberon
Bottler: Cheateau de Leberon
Brand: Cheateau de Leberon
Selection: PM Spirits
ABV: 46% ABV
Age: 27 Years
Nose: Powerful and rich, syrupy grape character with some black currant undertones, blackberry and raspberry. Light tobacco, light on tannins and pepper, jammy at first. Light cream, nougat character. Touch of black tea.
Taste: Medium body, not crazy viscous, but pleasant. Proof is right on, doesn’t drink hot at all, but not thin either. Satisfying fruit character. Fuji apple, blackberry, a touch of vanilla bean, light oak once more, raisin bread. Spice drops on the back palate.
Finish: Long finish. A touch hot here, but satisfying and rich. Jammy grape character, fig, a touch of cherry and a delightfully satisfying oak, tannin, spice and tobacco linger on the back palate.
Overall: Quite lovely, this 94 is a delight that weaves together great fruit character and a bright, spritely profile alone with just enough tannin to produce a compelling pour.
Thanks for reading!
