Description

A Victorious Half-Century for Veuve Lafontan & Ses Enfants

Good things come to those who wait, and this 50-year-old Armagnac is no exception. Bas-Armagnac 50 Ans - Doyen D' ge is a bright blend presented in a sleek Cognacaise bottle, aged in an oak barrel over five decades in the heart of southwest France. Its name - Doyen D' ge - translates to ‘Oldest Member,’ reflecting the patience and familial craftsmanship that its production is rooted in.

The house behind this complex offering is Veuve Lafontan & Ses Enfants, a small, artisanal business that prides itself on an ancestral know-how honed since its inception in 1904. Nestled in a picturesque landscape in the lower Armagnac area, it is deeply influenced by the culture of the region - each surrounding vineyard, river and woodland informing the spirit of its brandies. Blends like Bas-Armagnac 50 Ans - Doyen D' ge fall to the house’s experienced master, who perfects each concoction in the dark cellar.

Bas-Armagnac 50 Ans - Doyen D' ge finds its home in a Cognacaise - a round, high bottle that is at once functional and stylish. Its color is a bright, rich mahogany, enveloped by elegant silver type and the house’s characteristic seal. This all makes for an enticing presentation that promises to delight the senses.

The experience of consuming this senior Armagnac is layered and full. Taut at first taste, nutty notes of hazelnut and almond are eventually revealed alongside fruity additions from prunes and dried fruit. The resulting experience of enjoying Doyen D' ge is one of unexpected aromas and rich gastronomic discovery.
