Nose: Pear compote, caramelized banana, English tea biscuit, vanilla, soft spices, hint of wood varnish which lifts the nose and adds a pleasant sharpness, hazelnut spread 

Palate: Good initial attack, followed by soft cushioned texture. Balanced and well blended: sum more than the parts. Pear and banana compote, vanilla, spices, creamy white chocolate, a slight oak note. Excellent gateway to more mature Armagnac flavors. 

Finish: Slightly tannic, characterful, fresh despite some of the non-fresh notes and flavors, fades away on caramelized fruits, vanilla and soft spices.


Marcillac Hors d’Age

Introducing the Marcillac Armagnac Hors d'Age, a harmonious and approachable blend designed to make Armagnac more accessible without compromising the distinctive character of the Marcillac range and the Tenareze terroir. This unique Armagnac blend combines 50% 1999 vintage for rich aroma and flavor, 25% 2003 vintage single grape variety Bacco for added character, and 25% 2011 vintage for a touch more alcohol, body, and strength. With an average age of 20 years, the youngest vintage is 12 years old, and the oldest is 24.

Bottled at a 42% alcohol by volume, this Armagnac offers an expressive and aromatic profile with a distinct personality, without sacrificing its balance and accessibility, perfect for all types of tasters.

The Ténarèze cru, located at the heart of the Armagnac region, is a hilly area known for its historic ridge road that has been used since prehistoric times. Nicknamed "Caesar's path" by the Romans, this route enabled travelers to journey between Bordeaux and the Pyrenees without having to cross any rivers or bridges. This production zone experiences a more Mediterranean climate due to its exposure to the southeast wind, and its fertile soil consists of silty and sandy-clay in the valley bottoms and clay-limestone on the hillsides.

Experience the inviting and well-balanced taste of Marcillac Hors d'Age Armagnac, a true reflection of the Tenareze terroir's personality and soul and a fantastic new addition to the Marcillac Armagnac range.

About Armagnac Marcillac

With its sandy, gravel-rich soils, Lot-et-Garonne is similar to that of Bas Armagnac, producing Ugni Blanc grapes that result in powerful Armagnacs which are superior for aging. Meanwhile, the chateau, made with thick stone walls, provides the perfect location to age eaux-de-vie for extended time periods. These conditions allow Maison Armagnac Marcillac to produce well-aged vintage products of premium quality and tasting characteristics. Combining the wonders of a superb region with the perfect conditions for aging, a spectacular result is always granted. Run by Robert, a fourth-generation winemaker on the estate, today the brand brings forward both innovation and modernity to the company, while still remaining true to the traditional methods of Armagnac production through years of dedication and craftsmanship.
