From 80% ugni blanc, the remainder being baco. It doesn't say so on the label, but I believe Bordeneuve is Bas-armagnac, from those famous fauve sands terroirs. Colour: gold. Nose: I'm finding tiny whiffs of coal smoke, quite bizarrely, then rather fresh liquorice and stewed peaches and apricots, which is quite typical. Surely firmer than the Sigognac, while that's not only the higher alcohol. Some muscovado chiming in after a while. Mouth: closer to the style of the Sigognac, rather grapy, with some liquorice and peaches, some honey, some mead, overripe apples, rather a little oak… These juices generally become quite magical after thirty or forty years in the cask, I especially remember a stupendous 1972 that we had tried in January this year (a Sigognac Old Master Spirits, WF 91). Finish: medium, meady, grassy. Peach skin. A little green wood in the aftertaste. Comments: still a little rustic but extremely all right.
