Baco is a hybrid grape variety, discovered by the teacher François Baco, nurseryman in the Landes and passionate about viticulture. The genetic origin is a crossing of the Folle-Blanche and Noah grape varieties made in 1898 after the phylloxera crisis. It is also known under the names Baco 22A, Maurice-baco and Piquepoul de pays.
Its physiological characteristics make it a variety naturally resistant to bad weather and diseases. It remains present only in the Armagnac appellation where it produces eaux-de-vie of great finesse. This 100% BACO 10-year-old is a Bas Armagnac made with vintages, the youngest of which has been aged for at least 10 years in barrels.
In Gascony oak barrels.
Barely back in "adolescence", this blend of several vintages of Baco attracts us with its golden amber color with brilliant reflections. The first scents reveal a remarkable aromatic richness both in its power and in the notes of intertwined spices such as pepper and vanilla. A hint of grilled almond melted in fresh flower flavors such as carnation tickles our nostrils.
The appetizer completes our approach with a round and suave attack, its amplitude makes us discover touches of cloves and grilled almonds to end on a slightly pastry and cocoa finish.
