Marquis de Montesquiou
Marquis de Montesquiou Fine Armagnac 40% 70cl
The Montesquiou (Mon-tess-kee-oo) family roots in Gascony - the legally defined area in which Armagnac can be produced - date all the way back to 1040. Indeed, the most famous member of the family is d'Artagnan, musketeer for the King of France.
This Fine release (pronounced 'Feen') is the youngest bottling of the Marquis de Montesquiou, with a marriage of ages between 2 and 5 years in fresh French oak. The youth is evident, with an burst of spices to start before a buttery caramel feel arrives towards the mellow finish. There's a nuttiness on the finish, akin to hazelnut brittle, which lingers pleasantly. It's a great introduction to what Armagnac can offer at a young age, with a sprightly complexity that is lovely on it's own, or would bring depth to a brandy based cocktail. And the bottle looks great too!
