Description

Duc Moisans Millésime 1979: Summer Sunshine and Harvest Rain

The Armagnac Duc Moisans Millésime 1979 is a vintage Armagnac produced from grapes harvested in the autumn of 1979. It has been aged for decades in fine-grained oak barrels, allowing the eaux-de-vie to develop a striking color, depth of flavor and concentrated aromas. This is a ‘très vieille’ reserve, which indicates it has been aged significantly longer than a traditional XO. 

Single harvest Armagnacs such as this represent beautiful snapshots of the past, giving a glimpse into the individual characteristics created by variations in rainfall, cloud cover and temperature. The year 1979 saw a warm spring and summer which resulted in a solid crop of healthy grapes. Although the harvest was affected by rain, sugar and acid levels remained optimal, producing wines of exceptional character and length.

Armagnac is a grape brandy produced in the Gascony region of south-west France, between the Adour and Garonne rivers by the foothills of the Pyrenees, as it has been since at least the 15th century. The terroir here is a mixture of sand and clay, spread across rolling hills drenched in sunshine during the long summer - resulting in dark, rich and rustic eaux-de-vie with concentrated aromas. Traditionally produced using wines made from Colombard, Baco Blanc, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc grapes, Armagnac is distilled in column stills rather than pot stills, and distilled only once. The resulting spirit is generally of a low ABV - as low as 52% - and is then aged in oak barrels before being bottled.

Presentation of the Bottle

The tall, classic bottle - reminiscent of styles popular during the 19th Century - features an elegant label with the vintage prominently displayed. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes sealed with red wax. Presented in a simple and elegant wooden box, this release makes an excellent gift for anyone who wants to celebrate a 1979 birthday or anniversary.

How to Serve

We recommend serving this elegant vintage Armagnac as a digestif, paired with almond cake, Italian espresso or a light Lonsdale cigar. Pour into a tulip glass, but let the spirit to rest for 30 seconds before taking a sip - this will allow its warm aromas to fully develop for a truly memorable drinking experience.
