The Domaine de la Tuilerie is a small family farm nestled in the heart of Bas-Armagnac, the renowned terroir of “sables fauves”. Colette Remazeilles, third generation at the head of the estate, raises 2 hectares of Baco grapes there to produce amazing Armagnacs in her wood-fired still.

This 1984 Armagnac from Domaine de la Tuilerie was selected by the jury for its rich complexity and balance. Nicholas found the nose “lovely and warm,” like an “old cigar box” and the palate “thick, oily, and dark fruity like old cognac” with an “amazing” mouthfeel. Pietro noted “dark plum” fruits and reminiscent rum notes – specifically some old rums from Guadeloupe and even Diamond from Guyana. Matured in a very small, old wood-fired still then a wet cellar, this Bas-Armagnac has developed deep, intriguing layers described by Pietro as “complexity, oiliness with the wood, without the astringency.” Bertrand claimed this Armagnac “checks all of the boxes” with a nose that is “deeper, darker, and more complex” and gives off rich “black cherry, exotic fruit” notes. 

The jurors agreed it was a special, characterful spirit – the epitome of a great old Armagnac. Don’t miss this rare chance to experience a 1984 taste hand-selected by our enthusiastic, amateur spirits fans.
