Baron de Sigognac
In Armagnac, legend has it that one day long ago Baron de Sigognac took all of the traditional clocks out of his cellars. Fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way Armagnac ages so well he had some very strange timepieces made. On these clocks the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. The seconds had become years the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries. Baron de Sigognac had found the core of the mystery of Armagnac ageing: time and patience. The legend adds that with time Baron de Sigognac who had thoroughly separated each harvest in different casks took first the idea of selling his brandies as genuine vintaged Armagnacs. Today the Baron de Sigognac distillery is a still traditional one. It is located on the north wing of the main cellar an old imposing building in the very heart of the vineyard. At Sigognac the distillery is primarily the place where the secrecy of the house know-how holds an uttermost importance. The distillation is a magic moment when the entirely natural wines give birth to the sublime Sigognac Armagnacs.
Aromas of dried fruit, roasted nuts, caramel, and pepper. Smooth and elegant on the palate with aromas and flavours of prunes, violets, fig, honey and butterscotch. Very warm pepper and earthy finish.
A sipping armagnac to saviour.
