Ryst Dupeyron Armagnac, 1978

Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
50cl bottle

The 1978 Dupeyron Armagnac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.

The Maison Ryst-Dupeyon was founded by Joseph Dupeyron in 1905.

Barbarossa, 1978

Fattoria Paradiseo

Barbarossa produces full-bodied red wine that, while austere in its early life, has the potential to be cellar-worthy. Barbarossa is only occasionally produced as a varietal wine and is more commonly used in blends, rosé or grappa. When young, Barbarossa wine tends to be fairly closed which is why it often blended with more generous varieties. Varietal Barbarossa will, as it ages, start to show floral aromas of violet and roses, before becoming more gamey and balanced.

Barbera del Monferrato, 1978

Luigi Brezza

This 1978 Barbera del Monferrato has a deep ruby hue and a bouquet of ripe plum and cherries, often piqued by a hint of black pepper. Barbera-based wines are known for retaining a balanced acidity even in warmer vintages, making them an ideal partner to tomato-based dishes. These wines are lower in tannin, making them more approachable in their early years. Barbera from Monferrato differs from that made in Asti or Alba in both its provenance and style. Where Alba and Asti produce strongly structured wines, their Monferrato equivalents are more aromatic and often a little less robust.

Barolo, 1978

Giordano

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.
