Castarède VSOP benefits from a prolonged aging despite the VSOP classification which for the Appellation D'igine Controllée would provide for a minimum aging of 4 years. This expression of the Casterède maison in fact rests in new French oak barrels for a minimum of 8 years, in fact more than double the average of cognacs of the same category, therefore it will be a decidedly more complex distillate that reveals typical woody and dried fruit notes. of the older Bas Armagnacs. Castarède distils the wines from grapes produced on the 16 hectares of property as well as a small part that is purchased by some trusted suppliers. Spontaneous fermentations and no addition of additives and sulfur allow the production of very territorial wines that will give the distillate a great character.
