Louis Roque La Vieille Prune NV
Plum brandy distilled by Distillerie Louis Roque in Souillac, Quercy, in the southwest of France • Distilled from three varieties of plums: Ente (red plum), Mirabelle (yellow plums most famous in the Lorraine) and Reine-Claude (green plums grown all over France). • Double distilled on a copper pot still • Aged a minimum of 4 years in 400-liter oak casks • Boisterous fruit and esters burst off the nose with vibrant oxidation and notes of rich, nutty marzipan from the plum pits. The palate is deep and oaky, full of raisins and—you guessed it—prunes. Curious and delicious!
