L'ENCANTADA 1988 Domaine del Cassou 46,9%
Armagnacs, France / Gascogne, 50cl, Ref: 5086A
Found in the Landes department of France, in the town of Arthez-d’Armagnac, Domaine Del Cassou produces Bas-Armagnac exclusively from the Baco grape variety. Some of the vineyard’s parcels are over a century old. In order to preserve as much of the naturally fruity character of its armagnacs as possible, the vineyard only uses second-hand red oak casks for ageing. Wonderfully embodying the “house style”, right to the very delicate wood of its finish, this 1987 vintage bottling bursts with fruit, whether fresh, black, exotic or dry.
Profile: the distinguished initial nose is characterised by citrus fruit and fresh tobacco. Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (lime blossom) and herbaceous. Black and exotic fruits beautifully punctuate the aromatic palette. The lively palate has lots of floral and fruity (white grape, guava) elegance. The very delicately woody finish is characterised by notes of beeswax, fig and pink peppercorn. Limited edition of 112 bottles Exclusive to LMDW.

- Appearance : orangey copper with glints of burnished gold.
- Nose : fine, distinguished. The initial nose is marked by notes of orange zest, mandarin and fresh tobacco. Incredibly open, it gradually becomes floral (lime blossom) and vegetal (lichen, mushroom). Then, keeping the same light-dark tones, it lingers with green liquorice, milk chocolate and candied fruit (apricot, date). Black fruit (cherry, blackberry) and exotic fruit (mango, persimmon) punctuate the aromatic palette.
- Palate : lively, resolute. With a charcoal-drawn line, the palate invites us to stroll through the rows of grapevines during flowering. The entire gustatory palette exhales bouquets of white flowers before the mid-palate leaves for fruity terrain (apple, crunchy white grape). The refreshing end of the palate is characterised by notes of vanilla, coconut milk and exotic fruits (banana, guava).
- Overall : soft, serene. Very fine notes of wood (oak) set the tempo for a warm finish that explores glazed (beeswax, wood filler) and spicy (star anise, clove) lands. The retro-nasal olfaction is delicately roasted (coffee, tobacco) and liquorice (violet liquorice sweets). The empty glass is marked by dried fruit (fig, walnut), marshmallow and pink peppercorn.
