Baron de Sigognac VSOP

40% abv

Vol- 70cl

This is golden amber in colour and crystal clear. It has a complex and strong nose, giving floral notes with a characteristic perfume of plums. With very good balance in the mouth, this is one of the best VSOP armagnac we have seen and is endowed with a suave vanilla taste with notes of crystallised fruits that is very rare in a VSOP. It is best served as an after dinner drink.

The VSOP Baron de Sigognac is a Bas Armagnac grown on sandy soils in the heart of Bas Armagnac where one finds the Domaine de Bordeneuve. The armagnac spends six months in new oak followed by seven years in old oak, developing its noble flavours, which is why it is sometimes labelled as seven year old armagnac.

Within Armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, Baron de Sigognac took all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. Fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way Armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. On these clocks, the face 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.

Baron de Sigognac had found the core of the mystery of Armagnac…

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. Baron Sigognac himself had become the memory of his Armagnacs.
