Proof66 Notes

Castarede VSOP Armagnac is often labeled with a designation of "10 ans d'age" or an age statement of 10 years. This is significantly longer than the minimum 5 years required for the VSOP label. They suggest looking for aromas of walnut and cocoa among others. 

La Maison Castarede was founded in 1832 and claims title to the "oldest armagnac trading house in existence." The company maintains two cellars for aging that are each over 100 years old. They feel that conditions of their cellars create a peculiar and special environment lending character to their armagnac. The company maintains its own vineyards in the Bas Armagnac region growing Folle Blanche, Colombard and Saint-Emilion grapes.

This one almost has a rye spice to it neat, but when you drop an ice cube in it, it opens up some of the subtleties hiding behind the curtain and it sings in perfect harmony. Very good and worth the price.
