Armagnac Jean Cavé Brut de Fût 1888
This Armagnac Cask Strength 1888 is made up of eaux-de-vie distilled from the best wines of the Gascon region dating as far back as 1888. Due to its impressive age, this Armagnac is a one-of-a-kind unique vintage that is incredibly rare to come by. Through the undergoing of a remarkably long aging process, 1888 has acquired the fullness of its aroma from inside the cask.
At Maison Jean Cave, the cellar master strives to restore the alcohol level each year of the aging process in order to preserve harmony and carefully bring alcohol levels down so that it is ready for consumption. Meanwhile the cellar master is also responsible for maintaining and stabilising the humidity and temperature of the cellar - this is deemed essential in order to preserve the decades of perfumes, aromas, finesse and expression of the eaux-de-vie.
