L'ENCANTADA Domaine Del Cassou 1988 45%

Armagnacs, France / Gascogne, 50cl, Ref: 5086

Made exclusively from ancient Baco vines, this vintage from the Del Cassou estate has refused to age, and more precisely, it has banished any reference to wood from its olfactory and flavour vocabulary. In doing so, it shows a youthfulness of spirit that leads it into territory that would at first glance appear quite far removed: the world of whisky. It is also a beautiful expression of the Boulbènes (silica-clay-sand) terroir from which it originates. Spectacular.

Profile: lively, vigorous. Exotic, mustard, spicy notes (pepper, nutmeg) contrast the acidity of the citrus fruits on the palate. Long, silky finish.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : bright gold with subtle glints of rose.
  • Nose : refined, elegant. The woody influence on the opening is barely noticeable. This paves the way for fresh (apple, pear) and exotic (pineapple, kaffir lime) fruit to fully express themselves. It gradually develops honeyed and slightly mustardy notes. Growing increasingly spiced (pepper, nutmeg), it turns almost medicinal (camphor, balm).
  • Palate : lively, vigorous. The acidity and bitterness of the citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) give the attack bags of energy. The mid-palate is particularly herbaceous (cut hay, lime blossom). Its relationship with some Speyside single malts is uncanny. It lingers with notes of incense and beeswax.
  • Overall : long, silky. Its silky character evokes the mellowness of the plums that can be tasted through the many other fruits with which it abounds. In particular: nectarines, yellow peaches, William pears and pippin apples. It evolves classically with prunes and winey notes. The retro-nasal olfaction is a combination of “tawny sand” and fresh tobacco. The empty glass is herbaceous (gentian, juniper) and spiced (black pepper, cloves).
