Armagnac Domaine Rounagle 1967 - “Shaken, not stirred”
The 1967 is a dapper pour that showcases an incredibly rare tropical rancio. Hugues would only let us have 100 bottles in the beginning. He cranked up the price last minute, and I nearly had to break his arm to get any at all. He is keeping this single cask for a 60 year special bottling, so this is all we get lads & ladies. Quality Armagnac still in cask from the 60’s is a rare thing, and I expect we’ll pop the top and treasure each sip together. Sascha, Brian & Dressler were the force behind the 1967. We’re talking about a wonderful balance between the orchard and the garden. Prunes, papayas, bruised pears & mangos, tarragon, walnuts, stewed tomatoes and a brush of Christmas spices. The rancio here is a rare treat - it’s not often you find a brandy that matured beyond the walnut butter and Bleu cheese rancio into the rarified magical land of subtropical fruit.
