Gelas Bas Armagnac 18 years 100% Folle Blanche Unfiltered 44.7% 700ml$206.00
Folle Blanche is the historic variety of Armagnac which once dominated the vineyards before their destruction by phylloxera in 1878; it was then called the "piquepoult". Today, a few small vineyards remain, but its cultivation is very difficult. Tasting note: - The appearance reveals a very lovely amber hue with sparkling gold highlights. - The nose is very subtle associating prune aromas with a light but intense rancio, and a spicy finish. - In the mouth, the attack is pure/direct. Plenty of body with hints of preserved fruit, kirsch, and lots of spices. - After opening, the bottom of the glass is majestic with liquorice, wooded, fat/oily notes.

It is a hybrid, offspring of Folle Blanche and Noah, invented by a schoolteacher from the Landes, one Monsieur Baco, in the wake of the phylloxera invasion.

Tasting note: Colour: A deep topaz hue with gold highlights. Nose: the nose is marked mainly by sweet spices with hints of roasted coffee and cinnamon. A very complex nose. Palate: The attack is pure/direct and lively. Very rich with a dominant of liquorice and preserved plume tannins. The finish is long marked by wood, toasted bread and spices. After opening, the bottom of the glass is deep with hints of preserved plums and apricots.

Gelas 1959 Bas Armagnac 40% 700ml$1,751.00
Distilled in 1959 and bottled in 2018, this remarkable wood-aged spirit promises a sublime brandy experience. At around 50-60 years of age, the wood has infused its full quota of tannins and aromas to the liquid. At this stage, explains Gelas, the Armagnac is typically decanted into glass demijohns where it will continue to age in storehouses built by Baptiste Gélas in 1875. The period in glass continues to develop the brandy, helping to harmonize the aromas and preserve the characteristic rancio notes.
