DARROZE DOMAINE DE COQUILON 1978 49%

Coming back to earth

4.5 hectares planted in Baco and Ugni Blanc. Bas-Armagnac. 49%. Distilled in 1978 and bottled in 1992. Here is the Darroze Domaine de Coquillon 1978!

Colour: Light brown, gold lights. Medium regular tears.

Nose: A milkiness/creaminess on chestnut cream at first. Orange zest caramel. Ristretto scents. A lot of roasted smells. Rich ample nose. Burnt woods. Quite rancioted. Cocoa powder. Coffee beans. A nice earthiness too, that reminds me of some old Agricole rums (Bally, Neisson). 

Palate: Dry texture. Wet wood/wet undergrowth. Very humid aromas. Wet grass. Quite disturbing. Pinesap. Cocoa powder again. Cedar tree. Still the same earthiness previously perceived. Acid and earthy notes, a bit woody too. Well, it’s a rich palate but too imprecise to go further. Let’s give it some air. 

Last Notes: Burnt caramel. Toasted bread. Orange jam. Hazelnut jam. It turns quite buttery. Slightly honeyed. Great earthiness again. Obvious Agricole rum scents. Nice chocolate/hazelnut notes back on the palate. Dusty wood. Huge cask influence here. A nice creaminess paired with a sweet texture (with a tad of acidity). Less precise than the Dartigalongue Folle Blanche 1993. Some humid notes again, mainly on decayed/wet wood. It ends on mojito aromas with a tad of earthiness. Quite destabilizing…

In my humble opinion, this Darroze Domaine de Coquillon is quite unbalanced but remains very interesting. Less convincing than the Domaine de Laburthe 1976 that I tasted a few weeks ago. 

My very subjective note: 83/100
