Chabot Armagnac Vintage 1944

Initial sniffings discover earthy/woodsy scents of maple syrup, pine nuts and forest floor; aeration reveals traces of hard cheese (rancio), oak resin, butter, grapes and sautéed almonds. Palate entry is rich, sweet and caramel-like; at midpalate the sweetness narrows, allowing bittersweet cocoa, oloroso Sherry, grapes and dark caramel to enter the mix. Finishes cocoa-like and plummy. P.P.
