Janneau 12-Year-Old Armagnac

An age-old love story

Made from Janneau‚Äôs Sin¬≠gle Dis¬≠tillery, this spir¬≠it is a unique, well-bal¬≠anced Arma¬≠gnac that deserves a place on your shelf.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Soft but intense, the Jan­neau 12-year-old Arma­gnac has aro­mas of plum, dry fruits, and woody characteristics.

On the palate, this spir¬≠it is fruity, with a great per¬≠son¬≠al¬≠i¬≠ty. Made exclu¬≠sive¬≠ly of Ugni grapes, this Arma¬≠gnac from Janneau‚Äôs Sin¬≠gle Dis¬≠tillery is a unique offer¬≠ing. Its com¬≠plex fla¬≠vor won it sil¬≠ver at the Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Wine and Spir¬≠it Com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠tion in 2015.

PREPA­RA­TION AND PAIRINGS

Gen­er­al­ly enjoyed as an after-din­ner liqueur, it’s best to enjoy it neat, and at room temperature.

But it also pairs so beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly with starter fare, like smoked salmon, caviar, or foie gras. Try this one from Godard-Cham¬≠bon & Mar¬≠rel.

For mains, have a glass with duck breast, or a mush¬≠room omelette and arugu¬≠la sal¬≠ad. If you hap¬≠pen to still have some in your bot¬≠tle, con¬≠tin¬≠ue on to dessert. The Jan¬≠neau 12-year-old Arma¬≠gnac is per¬≠fect with a tarte tatin, a pear char¬≠lotte, or a lemon tart.

THE ELDEST

Arma­gnac is the old­est of the three AOC French brandies, the oth­er two being Cognac and Cal­va­dos. It orig­i­nat­ed in Gas­cony, in South-West­ern France, at the foot of the Pyre­nees Moun­tains. And Mai­son Jan­neau is one of the main pro­duc­ers of this incred­i­ble spirit.

Found­ed in 1851 by Pierre Eti­enne Jan­neau, Mai­son Jan­neau has passed down the secrets of Grand Arma­gnac through four gen­er­a­tions. It is now home to the most impor­tant stor­age facil­i­ty, and pro­duc­tion plant in the Arma­gnac region.

Storage Instructions

Store your bot¬≠tle upright in a cool, dark place, ide¬≠al¬≠ly between 12 and 15¬įC. There is no need to refrig¬≠er¬≠ate cognac. To main¬≠tain the moist¬≠ness of the cork and pre¬≠vent it from chip¬≠ping, occa¬≠sion¬≠al¬≠ly tilt your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal¬≠ly two to three times, then restore it to the upright posi¬≠tion. Opened bot¬≠tles of cognac should be con¬≠sumed with¬≠in six months, as the alco¬≠hol may oxi¬≠dize and begin to lose its flavor.
