I'm totally in love with this gorgeous vintage from the new Domaine du Berdet. Like all Thierry's armagnacs this is distilled from 100% baco, but it's not as soft and supple as the 1995. Instead expect bigger notes of fresh oak spice, fresh earth, dried fruit, exotic wood and a sweet burnt sugar finish. This one might for the bourbon drinkers thanks to the notes of vanilla, varnish, caramel and sweet fruit. The long spicy finish is drier than the 1999 and really highlights the vanilla extract notes from the nose. Another rockin' price as well.
