Villa Medici

I tasted Armagnac Marcillac the first time during a cigar and Armagnac pairing event in Tokyo, it is powerfull yet smooth. It reminded me of this famous painting by Claude Lorrain. I enjoyed a lot.

A defining moment that switched me from Cognac to Armagnac

To be honest, as a Cognac connoisseur, I picked this bottle of Armagnac because its packaging. I love the way its modern wooden casket gradually reveals the ancient mousquetaire's cross as I open it and stage it before serving the precious liquor to my wife and friends. Probably and somewhat unconsciously it signaled the promise that fond memories would spring from the past into my busy life. And that is exactly what I experienced with the glass.

Armagnac is Cognac PLUS: Same wonders coming from the fine alcohol aged in a perfect wooden barrel for so many years, PLUS an incredible richness of flavors and perfumes tracing back to the very grapes and the very soil and the unique year it was harvested from. While the Cognac process eradicates these subtle sources by boiling the wine twice to 90 degrees, the Armagnac process cherishes and keeps defining wine traces through the ages by boiling it to 70 degrees only and only once. This shows down through the tears in that bottle.

No wonder why the French true liquor connoisseurs from Gascony fall in for Armagnac and its infinite diversity and leave the norther more standard Cognac to the foreigners. This Armagnac Marcillac 1964 will remain to me as THE bottle that switched me from Cognac to Armagnac. Good bye Cognac, Bonjour Armagnac !

Definitively recommended and actually surprisingly cheap for the value.

Excellent Armagnac from a small producer

Excellent Armagnac from a small boutique producer. Not easy to find online, I am glad to see this product available on CE. Tasted in France during a trip to Gascony, we enjoyed the complexity and evolution of this Armagnac. Good price as well considerinig its over 55 years old. The packaging makes it a perfect gift.
