Notes from Mark Darozze:
The Bertruc estate is located in the magic area of the best terroirs of Bas-Armagnac: Hontanx, Le Houga, Perquie, Labastide d'Armagnac and of course le Fr?che. On these sandy soils the baco grape is king. At this estate, two main grapes are planted: Bacco and Ugni Blanc. All the Armagnacs produced at Bertruc are exceptional.

Nice golden colour. Brilliant. The nose is racy and elegant with suggestions of linden, liquorice and white pepper. Very sweet and fine. On the palate, the tannins are silky and round. Gingerbread, cloves, honey and crystallized flavours. Very long. Again fine and elegant.
