Francis Darroze first developed his love for Armagnac while working as a sommelier in his family's two-star Michelin restaurant in Bas- Armagnac. In 1974, after years of sourcing the best Armagnacs for the restaurant, Francis began a new business as a producer and trader, specializing in single vintage, single estate, caskstrength Bas-Armagnacs. He now enjoys a welldeserved international reputation as “The Pope of Armagnac”, and offers an unparalleled range of bottlings from the finest domaines and vintages available.
A blend of Baco and Ugni Blanc, this cognac is light brown with golden tints. Very fine aromas of dried fruits (apricot, citrus, tangerine and fig) merge with vanilla, linden and a hint of honey. Long and silky tannins provide an elegant backbone and the lengthy finish feature notes of rancio and sweet baking spices.
