Gelas Single Cask Bas-Armagnac 12YO

$144.95

Gelas Single Cask Bas-Armagnac 12YO. It is not usual to present a strong Armagnac with 54% vol. but I have decided to follow an authentic approach of great Armagnac according to the balance of all flavours. Since 1896 Emilio Lustau has been proud to offer a wide range of the best quality Sherries. The range comprises more than forty wines originating from the three towns which make up the Sherry Triangle: Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

-Appearance : Intense topaz amber with gold highlights, bright and limpid.

-Nose : Elegant with a multtude of spices, notes of pepper and nuts.

-Mouth : the attack is clean, the tannins very rich with beeswax notes and tobacco. The finish is very rich on the palate on coffee and cocoa.

FROM THE 19TH CENTURY TO TODAY
Family traces go way back to 1246, in the form of the King’s Musketeer, D’Artagnan (born Charles de Batz), but it was really not until around the middle of the 19th century that the Gélas family linked its own destiny to that of Armagnac.

the resulting product a fine reputation at the grandest of tables,
be it in France or abroad.

Today, Pierre’s son Philippe, representing the fourth generation of the Gélas family to take the reins, has been running the firm since late 2001. He is carrying on in the innovative spirit of his forebears by introducing single varietal Armagnacs, thus asserting the differentness of the Maison Gélas: an alternative Armagnac……
