Larressingle Armagnac X.O. 86@ 750ML      
Sku: 20304

Larressingle X.O. Grande Réserve Armagnac is produced from a cross-vintage blend of distillates of at least 15 to 20 years of age or more, as opposed to the legal minimum of five. Armagnacs are selected exclusively from wines produced in the Ténačze and Bas-Armagnac districts, with those from Ténarčze predominant. Smaller proportions of very old brandies from the Bas-Armagnac lend mellowness and richness to the finished spirit. The result is a complex, virile and long-lived Armagnac that is nevertheless very elegant and refined on the palate, with a subtle, smoky bouquet hinting of prunes and hazelnuts and a smooth, lasting finish. Forty-three percent alcohol by volume (86 proof).

Tasting notes
This spirit is a marriage of very old reserve brandies from the Ténareze district which shows refined, vinous, mellow, smoky flavors and aromas offset by notes of plum and prune ending in a warm, lasting finish.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points (Mar 2015)
Aromas of baked stone fruit with nutmeg and allspice play on the nose. Sweet at first in the mouth, then developing into tobacco spice and hints of medium dark caramel. The layers continue to unfold as you sip.

Food pairing
The highest-quality Armagnac is usually enjoyed after dinner as a contemplative drink. It should be served at cool room temperature and allowed to warm in the glass, which slowly releases waves of aroma. Pour about 1 inch of Armagnac into a thin tulip-shaped glass or a snifter. The glass may be held in the palm of the hand to warm the liquid. Pause to smell the aromas, then take small sips to appreciate the Armagnac’s smooth texture, its expressive layers of flavor and its lengthy finish.
