Comte de Lauvia XO Decanter
The palate is rich and very rounded the strength of the alcohol is smoothed out by while remaining powerful with vanilla, woody and fruity aromas, which includes spiced hints of cinnamon. The palate is full of rich elegant flavours of prune and orange with spicy hints giving rise to a long smooth finish.
Lauvia is an artisan armagnac that starts life with our handful of top-rated wine estates in the heart of bas armagnac producing our preferred grapes, ugni blanc, folle blanche and baco. the eaux de vie are created by micro continuous distillation on the estates, in small batches at low temperature to retain maximum character. It is aged under the constant supervision and tasting inspection of our maitre de chais eric durand in our famous cellars, "the cathedral" in eauze, where he manages over 1500 casks, starting with up to 9 months in new local oak followed by around 2 years in second/third fill oak, and completing the harmonisation and maturation in mature oak.
