1988 Domaine de Lassaubatju K&L Exclusive Vintage Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1091375

On our third day in Armagnac, David and I met a small producer named Blondeau who seemed to have a never-ending supply of amazing booze. His Domaine de Lassaubatju brandies were just what we were looking for - amazingly distinct Armagnac with plenty of cross-over appeal! While the spirits are still firmly grounded in the classic fruit and almond flavor profile, there's a distinct aroma of pencil shavings that comes from his custom-coopered barrels made with wood from a nearby forest. The result is the closest thing we'll see to a Bourbon lover's Armagnac. Made from a blend of Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc, and Baco, the 1988 shows dried apricot aromas with rich vanilla, a round mouthfeel, and an absolutely delicious nutty finish. The balance is impeccible. Imported directly for K&L, Lassaubatju represents what is now one of our best values for any type of spirit. I don't know where else you could find a 20+ year old, full proof spirit with this type of provenance that tastes this good. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

This is one of the spirits that the two Davids discovered on their trip to France. The Lassaubatju 1988 has nice sweet fruit aromas, followed by spice and fruit flavors that have a hint of wood. It is well balanced and has a nice finish. Well worth the price.

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.
