Armagnac Goudoulin - Bas Armagnac 40 ans 40% - 70cl
This brandy wine has been aged for 40 years in wooden casks to become what it is today: an extremely unique luxury product.
Its color is a mixture between amber and old gold, but otherwise the distillate is shiny and crystal-clear. The first experience on the nose is a pleasantly sweet and intense aroma reminiscent of cinnamon and baking plums. On the palate, a mild aroma develops that will lead you straight into your pleasure zone. A gentle alcohol flavor melts with tannins which are reinforced by a rancio tone.
An extensive and unforgettable flavor experience – you are guaranteed to love this Armagnac!
Did you know?
- All the Goudoulin's brandies are aged in oak barrels that refine the Armagnac and allow them to fully develop their complex aromas.
- Throughout this period of aging, the alcohol level decreases by means of evaporation, shedding what we call "the angels' share" (read more about it on our FAQs).
- Serve it neat or with a splash of water in an Armagnac glass.
- Drink it slowly and pay attention on the way you are holding the glass, you don't want your body temperature to warm your glass up or it will spill the aromas and will taste like alcohol.

The History of the Goudoulin Distillery
Madame Jeanne Ménal Goudoulin joined forces with the wine producer Domaine de Bigor in Courrensan early on, as a young lady, when she married Joseph in the year 1908. The family of her husband had already been aging a remarkable collection of Armagnacs for generations.
Joseph unfortunately suffered severe injuries during the 1stWorld War, and succumbed to them in 1925. That's why Jeanne had to continue to deal with the skills of the house alone. In 1935, she began to deal with the ever-developing collection of Armagnacs in her possession, which is how the business Armagnac J. Goudoulin came into existence, which she supervised until 1964. Then nephew Christian Faure took over the reins, after he served as apprentice to his grandmother for a few years. Jeanne Goudoulin eventually withdrew from her public role and died in 1994, at over 100 year old.
The Goudoulin Distillery today
Christian Faure developed the company quite successfully and established the brand Armagnac J. Goudoulin as a world-wide high-class recognizable product. Then, in 2009, he sold the company to Michel Miclo from the Alsatian family distillery G. Miclo. Miclo's proclaimed goals are to continue to develop the reputation of Armagnac J. Goudoulin and also to preserve the recognizable quality and the traditional character of the product line. The vintage products leave the strongest impression, of which a few were even distilled during Jeanne Goudoulin's childhood years.
The Armagnac of the Goudoulin house is bottled by hand, and only after customer demand are the bottles sealed and also occasionally labeled according to the customer's wishes.
