Chateau de Millet XO Bas Armagnac
As soon as they are out of the still, brandies are put in 400 liter French Oak barrels and allowed to slowly age in the family's chai. This Hors d'Age, or XO, bottling is a blend of Armagnac aged between 15 and 25 years. On the nose, you immediately get flamed orange peel, backed up by toasted oak, vanilla, and floral notes, with a soft, tea like element alongside. On the palate, cooked pear and stone fruit meet toffee, a slight acidity, minerality, almonds and hazelnuts, and a slight hint of liquorice. Bottled at 42% abv.
