L'ENCANTADA 1994 Domaine del Cassou The Chronicles 48,8%

Armagnacs, France / Gascogne, 50cl, Ref: 55214

With its sandy and silty soils, known as sables fauves (tawny sands), the Domaine del Cassou's terroir brings lots finesse and fruit to the Bas-Armagnac it produces. Aged in a cask that was previously used to mature a peated single malt from the Ledaig distillery, this unusual version is a stroke of genius. A mixture of oily peat and prune, the initial nose immediately sets the tone for an aromatic palette that has fully achieved its goal of creating the perfect union between Gers and Scotland. In terms of flavours, without ever disrupting the harmony that reigns, the two protagonists take it in turn to gain the upper hand.

Profile: the pulpy initial nose offers an oily peat and prune. Allowed to breathe, it becomes exotic (banana), earthy, salty and apricoty. The rich attack is also spicy (ginger), candied (pear) and honeyed (heather). The mid-palate sees smoke from a Havana cigar gain a slight upper hand. The unctuous finish is empyreumatic (burnt wood), floral (iris) and also reveals brioche notes.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : copper with a topaz hue.
  • Nose : rich, pulpy. On the initial nose, an oily peat and prune make a superb union. Everything is clearly defined right from the start. This union leads to notes of exotic fruits (banana, pineapple), damp, salty soil, bacon, quince jelly and very ripe apricot. The herbaceous (malted barley) and vinous character of the aromatic palette ratifies the pact.
  • Palate : dynamic, rich. Spicy (candied ginger), rustic (pasture, alfalfa), candied (pear, Mirabelle plum) and honeyed (heather, acacia), the attack leans towards the Bas-Armagnac. Allowed to breathe, soot and intense smoke (Havana cigar, ash) give priority to the Isle of Mull single malt. These two flavour sequences coexist happily. Although the Havana cigar smoke gradually gains the upper hand.
  • Overall : long, unctuous. Despite boasting a very fine acridness, the start of the finish also reveals brioche notes. Like a filo apple tart. Gradually, roasted walnut, tar and root ginger render it particularly delectable and complex. The end of the palate is empyreumatic (burnt wood, cedar, liquorice). The empty glass is roasted, smoky, earthy, apricoty and floral (iris, lily).
