A property that's been in existence since the 1200s, Ognoas spends much of its time as an agricultural school and a training ground for young distillers. Because of their status as a "co-op" of sorts, the operation is partly subsidized by the French government, which means the prices are insanely low! Lucky us! Ognoas uses local trees for their cooperage and puts a medium toast on the barrel for a kiss of sweetness in the brandy. This roughly ten year old edition of Ognoas is a great alternative to the other $50-ish Armagnacs we offer, mainly because it stands out from the pack with its lush fruit and reserved oak character. There's a creaminess to the palate with oily fruit and soft caramel that oozes in waves towards the finish. For those looking for more finesse in their Armagnac, Ognoas is a great place to start.

For those of you who enjoyed our Ognoas XO editions of the past, this is pretty much the same Armagnac. A gorgeous, round, and elegant sipping Armagnac with plenty of fruit and soft richness for a great price. This batch is based on the 2006 vintage, so it's a minimum of 10 years of age. I've drunk two bottles already and we just got this in last week :)
