1991 was the very first vintage distilled at the Domaine d’Esperance. Unlike the bigger houses, Esperance uses no additives or colorings and ages their brandies in 100% new Gascon oak.
“Bottled at full proof, the 1998 14 year old Armagnac is distilled from Baco and bottled at cask strength. It resembles a solid cask of 14 year old Four Roses Bourbon, more than it does French brandy. With big toasted wood flavors, bold spice, and a solid backbone of charred oak, this is high-level Armagnac of the highest quality. As much for American whiskey fans as it is for Frenchophiles.” – K&L Wine Merchants
