Armagnac Jean Cavé Brut de Fût 1981
This Armagnac Cask Strength 1981 is a vintage Armagnac that is part of the house of Jean Cave’s “Brut de Fut” range. Produced from the very best wines of the Gascon region, it spent decades aging in old oak barrels, in order to acquire its distinct taste and fullness. Brut de Fut 1981 is from one single year of harvest and therefore, blending was not part of the production process.
The house of Jean Cave, instead dedicates all of their time and energy into preserving the natural character of the eaux-de-vie that is unique to its specific year of harvest - 1981. To do so, the cellar Master is responsible for maintaining and stabilising the humidity and temperature of the cellar - this is deemed essential in order to preserve the decades of perfumes, aromas, finesse and expression of the eaux-de-vie.
Situated amidst the Bas-Armagnac region, Maision Jean Cavé boasts four generations of expertise in the art of distilling and aging, both vintage and blended Armagnacs. With more than 135 years of tradition passed down through the family - this Cognac house comprises a vast range of unique products making it the prime starting place for those who are new to the world of Armagnac. With so much on offer - there really is something for everyone.
