The Guasch family, owners of Baron de Sigognac, have been based in Gascony since the 12th Century. Uniquely in the region, all of their production is distilled into Armagnac, and not wine. Run by father and son team Jean-Claude and Thomas who look after the viticulture, vinification and distillation. Each years' production is aged independently and then blended with other armagnac upon bottling under the supervision of Jean-Claude.
Compared to the already excellent 10 year old, this Sigognac expression has an increased ratio of the baco grape, which is renowned to age superbly. The result is an exceptional graceful and complex old brandy free from pretension and ridiculous pricing. Fruity, floral, buttery and spicy.
