Aromas of plums with strong notes of vanilla. Well structured taste, very soft, with vanilla and liquorice. Good persistence and finish of dry prunes. An elegant Armagnac, soft and subtle, representative of the Janneau style.
It is a blend (assemblage) of Armagnac aged for a minimum of 7 to 14 years (the average is of only 4 years as it is the minimum required by law to be called VSOP). The white wines come from the two regions of appellation contrôlée : Bas Armagnac and Tenarèze and are distilled using both the double distillation method (80%) and the single distillation (20%). The ‘eaux-de-vie’ are then aged separately mostly in Limousin oak casks and are blended together before bottling.
Maison Janneau is one of the oldest of the great Armagnac houses. Founded by Pierre Etienne Janneau, in the far off days of 1851 at Condom in Armagnac, four generations of the Janneau family have followed, passing down the secret of Grand Armagnac from father to son. In the early 70’s Cognac Martell purchased he family property and important investments in a new distillery and aging cellars expanded the maison to the dimensions we know today. Janneau is home to one of the most important production plant and storage facility of the Armagnac region.
