Marie Duffau Napoléon Armagnac
Minimum of 6 years old, Napoléon has flavors of cocoa, orange rind, cake batter and vanilla. Soft tannins on the finish and a touch of rancio to come.
“The opening nosings find smells of roasted chestnut and baked pear; later sniffings pick up succulent notes of pineapple, caramel, black raisins, prunes and old oak. The palate entry is creamy textured and semisweet; at the midpalate the flavor becomes integrated and very nutty/woody. Concludes oily, semisweet and oaky. Best Buy .” -90-95 points Wine Enthusiast
