Clés des Ducs XO CARAFE
The Armagnac XO Carafe Clés des Ducs Martéle is part of a limited series of blended Armagnac produced by the house of Clés des Ducs. Produced in the terroir, best known for its tawny sands - this Armagnac seller spreads its land over the villages of Panjas, Maupas and Estang.
Dating all the way back to the 15th century the house of Clés des Ducs is rich in history and expertise. At the heart of the brand's values is the priority is to highlight the fruit in the eaux-de-vie, with aromas from the ageing.
Using almost exclusively the Ugni Blanc grape variety, unlike many other classic Armagnacs, Armagnac XO has very little wood influence. Therefore, after the process of distillation is complete, the house of Cles des Ducs favour the aging process to take place in barrels that have had a light to medium toasting. This way the rich aromas of this Armagnac XO can evoke a unique contrast in the sweet and spicy notes present as they travel across the senses.
