Tariquet 15 Year Old Cask Strength Folle Blanche Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1063209

Cask strength Armagnac from a fantastic producer that's 100% Folle Blanche? Yes, please! How exciting that serious producers like Tariquet are giving customers what they want! Fully expressive, undilluted brandies that sing on the palate. The 8, 12, and 15 year expressions are fantastic and only get richer and more complex the older they are! Highly recommended.

Tariquet is making some of the most exciting Armagnacs on the market today. Stupendous values as well, this 15 year is produced exclusively from the rare folle blanche grape. Highly aromatic and bottled at cask strength, this is more flowers and fruit than spice and earth, but still ranks high on my list of best brandy values.

The 15 year is a really wonderfully warm, enveloping spirit. Apple, powdery vanilla, light caramel-almond notes build slowly as it warms in the glass until it has an almost palpable presence. The palate takes the apple in a dried dimension that somehow simultaneously has an unexpected juiciness to it, and, along with the caramel, gradually builds to an almost brown-sugary, date like intensity before fading gently to a finish of dried fruit and flowers. While this takes awhile to really strut its stuff, when it does it, it comes on with a vengeance. Be forewarned, this armagnac could definitely be habit forming.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
