Tasting Notes

The small bottler Encantada was started by four Armagnac super fans as an endeavor to uncover the most authentic and exceptional estates throughout Gascogne. Encantada identifies those great estates that might not be able to sustain commercial production without their expertise. They typically bottle single casks and never cut or filter the eau-de-vie before bottling. The Sablé estate is typical of small producers throughout Bas-Armagnac. The estate was planted to exclusively Baco and these four small vintages aged at the estate for decades before being uncovered by Encantada. An incredible rarity and magical treat fit for any lover of spirits.

    Wow this stuff is good. We're so lucky to be bringing these Encantadas in and the brand is just on fire. This wonderful estate only produced a tiny amount of brandy nearly 40 years ago. This is the most classic of ultra aged Armagnac. The nose is all dried apricots, prunes, five spice heavy on the cinnamon a subtle smoky woodsy note. The palate is unctuous but not syrupy. The exotic woods take over with a building spice. There's a huge contrast to the sweetness of the nose as the pepper and spice builds on the finish. Dark, dry, long with a gravelly note that picks up at the end. It's not a sweet one for sure. A truly tremendous example of what happens to Armagnac unattended to after 4 decades.
