Description

Armagnac Monluc Carafe XO EXTRA Premium

The award-winning Armagnac Monluc Carafe XO Extra Premium is a fine example of what outstanding Armagnac represents. Taking home a gold medal at the Concours Générale Agricole 2020 - it has received recognition for its excellence. This XO Extra underwent the maturation process in both old and new Limousin oak casks. For the first 10 years the eaux-de-vie soaked up the oak from old casks and then spent a further 24 months in new casks. The result is a refined Armagnac with unparalleled elegance and finesse. Its strong and rich aromas are representative of a well-aged blend of eaux-de-vie like this premium XO.

The house of Monluc resides in the heart of Gascony - a region famous for its Armagnac. The house offers an extensive variety of different products including; the famous Pousse Rapière, traditional method sparkling wines, still wines or Armagnacs, Flocs and liqueurs. This brand is a wonderful starting point for those new to the world of Armagnac, as the range includes younger offerings as well as more mature blends and vintage Armagnacs.

Presentation of the decanter

The 70 cl dazzling decanter matches its A-list quality, boasting a silver cork and stylish presentation box featuring mirrors which shows off this bespoke bottle from all angles. This one of a kind design will take pride of place as the sleekest in your drinks cabinet and is one to be appreciated amongst guests - as the design work alone is a certain conversation starter. Treasure it when sharing thought, as its rare nectar can only be enjoyed a number of times before it’s over.

How to enjoy

First, relish the Armagnac for all of its rich aromas and take it on the nose. The taste of this Extra XO works in conjunction with your nose; begin slowly and gently as the aromas are revealed. Swirl it gently in the glass to release further development of the aromas. The personality of Armagnac Monluc XO Extra is rich and flavorful - drink it neat to allow the bouquet to dance freely on your nose and palate.
