France’s first Brandy
When Heads-of-State visit France and are presented with a gift from the French Government, it’s always Armagnac Marcel Trepout.
Known throughout France as the Gourmet’s Armagnac, connoisseurs maintain that Trepout is the world’s top brandy. It has strong and refined aromas defined by essences of vanilla, butter, pine oranges, alcohol, prunes, caramel, and biscuit. The taste is both supple and well-rounded with hints of orange. This Bas-Armagnac possesses no harshness and is extremely well-balanced.
Once an ounce is poured into a brandy snifter it is slowly warmed by swirling in the hand. After this fine liqueur has warmed to body temperature, the aromas and taste can be truly appreciated.
Produced at the Chateau Notre-Dame in the heart of the Gascony, the stocks of Trepout date back to the 1830’s.
Due to the limited quantities of these rare casks, only 6 mixed cases have ever been produced. The Club was proud to offer one case for purchase this Christmas, which included one 700mL bottle of the following vintages:
