Armagnac 1965 Sempé Captures the Poise and Power of the Sixties

The year 1965 conjures many images - excited eyes observing the Space Race, fashion brands following Jackie Kennedy’s every move; politics, power and poise co-existed in an unforgettable era. And what of its Armagnacs? Armagnac 1965 Sempé also proves it’s worth remembering. Expertly distilled in Eauze and mastered by a distinguished house, experiencing the flavor of 1965 is at once easy and enjoyable.

Armagnac 1965 Sempé is produced by Sempé, an excellent trading house in the lower Armagnac region. It was founded by Abel Sempé in 1934 - a local senator and important member of the French Resistance who ventured into Armagnac distillation and production, particularly raising the profile of the business throughout his business travels in the 1950s.

So what does 1965 taste like? Taken neat, this vintage Armagnac is rich on the palate and deep in structure with a nutty finish. Aromatically, it is also anything but timid, oozing sixties glamor with powerful and developed notes of leather, wax and dried fruit. Presented in a Milady bottle, deep mahogany tones sit alongside lighter amber reflections behind Sempé’s elegant gold labeling. After opening the refined packaging, it’s best to remember Sempé’s foundational principle - that pleasure lies in sharing. This retro flavor is ripe for many to enjoy.

Sempé has received almost 100 awards since its creation in 1934, most recently winning gold in 2016 for their fine three-star Armagnac blend. The house has also won various medals for its series of vintage brandies, in which Armagnac 1965 Sempé features.

To taste the exquisite effects of terroir and time, vintage Armagnac lovers need look no further than Sempé’s standout 1965 offering.
