Description

Duc Moisans Millésime 1980: Liquid Gold from Gascogne

The Armagnac Duc Moisans Millésime 1980 is a vintage Armagnac produced from grapes harvested in the autumn of 1980. It has been aged for decades in fine-grained oak barrels, allowing the eaux-de-vie to develop a strikingly bright color and complex tannins on the palate. 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. While the somewhat cool and late growing season presented a few challenges, the harvest of 1980 still produced some wonderfully light and fresh wines. 

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 1980 birthday or anniversary.

How to Serve 

We recommend serving this elegant vintage Armagnac as a digestif, as its oak flavors are a perfect match for sweet desserts or even a cigar. Pour into a tulip glass, but let the spirit to rest for up to a minute before taking a sip - this will allow the aromas to fully develop and lead into a luxurious palate and finish.
