A 1953 Vintage Armagnac brandy wine, Baron De Sigognac, This vintage is marked by the Gascony history and terroir. Expression of the pure harvest of the year.

Tasting Notes: Beautiful reddish amber colour
Fine and powerful nose of prunes and dried fruits
Rich and well balanced in the mouth with a long fruity finish that is delicately woody.
In Armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago,
Baron de Sigognac took all the traditional clocks
out of his cellars.

Fascinated by the mystery surrounding
the way Armagnac ages so well,

he had some very strange timepieces made.
On these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve.
The seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries.

Baron de Sigognac had found the core of the mystery of Armagnac ageing : time and patience
The legend adds that, with time,
Baron de Sigognac who had thoroughly separated each harvest in different casks took first the idea of selling his brandies as genuine vintaged Armagnacs.
