A 1983 vintage from the famous Lacourtoisie house of Grand Bas Armagnac.
The boldness often associated with the label is present here, but itÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™s well harnessed after excellent aging. The nose is elegant and silky, the palate pure elegance. Softer than younger vintages from the same house.
Lacourtoisie of Domaine de La Coste is located in the Grand Bas Armagnac region, a sub-region of Bas Armagnac that is no longer recognised but considered absolute premium country for the spirit. A famous and hugely respected name amongst connoisseurs, everything about the house is understated ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â“ from the labelling to the lack of extravagant, flamboyant tasting notes and chest-beating.
The house focuses on baco grapes.
