A former Cellar Master at the renowned Armagnac estate of Chateau de Laubade for 22 years, Eric Artiguelongue struck out on his own and started blending Armagnac under his own label back in 2005. Working primarily with small growers and distillers with whom he has forged strong relationships with, Eric ensures consistent high quality. Over the last decade Eric has sourced and created a whole range of blends and vintages, allowing him to express all the best aromas and flavors of this exceptional appellation.
Eric Artiguelongue Bas Armagnac Vintage 1985 is a blend of 50% Ugni Blanc and 50% Baco, harvested in the year of 1985, which is certainly among the greatest years. Intense and shiny gold in color, the nose offers rich and complex aromas of tobacco, leather, coffee and apricot jam. The mouthfeel is silky on the palate with bold aromas of candied quince, cinnamon and vanilla, followed by subtle notes of spice, orange, grilled hazelnut and dark chocolate. Hints of warm prunes and dried figs lingers through the long finish.
