Award winning, the VSOP Baron de Sigognac is a Bas Armagnac grown on sandy soils in the heart of the Bas Armagnac. Spending six months in new oak followed by a seven year period in old oak, it imparts noble flavours and is very smooth on the palate. It is as an after dinner drink that the Baron de Sigognac presents its full range of aromas, though it is equally at home in cocktails or in recipes.
Yellow gold amber colour and clear. Initially some rich oaky notes, plums and dried fruit, later dominated by impressions of vanilla and reminiscent of brioche. Quite velvety on the palate at the start, followed later by the natural power of the spirit with its flavours of violets, prunes and vanilla. A gentle but long finish evokes liquorice, cinnamon and dried fruit.
An exceptional Armagnac.
