Lively crystallised Lemon orange peel nose plus nougat, vanilla and oak char. Smells a bit rustic but has good depth. Good weight on the palate, quite silky to attack, with firm, fiery spirit, and chewiness from the wood tannin. Big earthy flavours to close- almost mushroomy.

Founded in 1832 under NapolÃ©on III, CastarÃ¨de is the oldest Armagnac trading house in existence. Baron Haussmann who was the sub-prefect of NÃ©rac, initially encouraged their ancestors to become the first traders in the register of commerce. CASTAREDE ancient and persistent quality is throughout the best range in France of vintage Armagnacs all the way back to the end of the 19th century. But their superiority is that they can guarantee the absolute authenticity with the Indirect Ministry of taxation archives of Excise Taxes. And very few houses of Armagnac can do that with certainty.
