Grapes: Folle Blanche, Colombard.

 

Aromatics: Beautiful candied apricot, mandarin, vanilla and caramel notes.

About this spirits: Chateau du Prada is a tiny family owned and operated by one person, producing Bas-Armagnac from their own vineyard from generations. Every bottle is bottled by hand at order. This XO spends at least 11 years in a barrel instead of the standard 6 by law. 43% alcohol.

 

When to drink: Drink now and for the next 50-100 years.

 

Service: Neat in a small wine glass or a whisky glass.

 

Food match: Duck breast with honey, mushroom omelet. Fruit-based desserts such as Tarte Tatin. We could also recommend a creme caramel or chocolate.
