Baron De Signon Bas Armagnac VSOP

Baron De Sigognac Bas Armagnac VSOP

In Armagnac, legend has it that, Baron de Sigognac took all the clocks out of his cellars. Fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way Armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. The clock faces had ten divisions instead of twelve. The seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries. The legend adds that, with time, Baron de Sigognac came to trust only his palate in telling the age of an Armagnac. The clocks were left unwound.Grown on sandy soils in the heart of the Bas Armagnac this Armagnac spends six months in new oak followed by a seven year period in old oak. It offers notes of caramelised peaches, toffee apples and dried apricots which is balanced by creamy vanilla and delicate floral notes.
