Chateau de Pellehaut K&L Exclusive L'Age de Glace Tenareze Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1137465

Chateau Pellehaut has been one of our top direct imports for the past year here at K&L. We've visited the Tenereze producer twice over the past few years, always finding something new to bring home for our brandy fans. What really excited us this year, however, was a new project they were working on called L'Age de Glace: a young brandy meant to drink on the rocks (hence the name "Ice Age"). The fruit of the Armagnac takes center stage here, melding wonderfully with the small hint of vanilla from the wood. It's all distilled from Folle Blanche fruit and it's soft, round, and aromatic, but it still has that little bit of rustic brandy flavor that I associate with old school Armagnac. At 41%, it's light and easy going, but there's still a lot of character. I have a feeling I'll personally be going through bottles of this. Bottles. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

The concept behind this Armagnac is to offer something to drink on the rocks or in cocktails. It could, however, be enjoyed alone. It is light,clean tasting,soft and fruity, and very easy to drink.

I'm thinking of this as an Armagnac light...almost a summer Armagnac. The oak is well integrated, making for a very soft and refreshing spirit with a touch of vanilla, noyau, and dried apricot on the palate. Mixed with ice and a touch of soda this could be the perfect accompaniment for a ripe apricot tart over a layer of vanilla bean diplomat cream.

This bottle is way too delicious for this price- rich and easy but still showing that true armagnac spice with flavors of toasted almonds, oak, and honey. This price is ridiculous-buy this now!

This brand new bottling from Chateau De Pellehaut is guaranteed to get the creative juices flowing of all of our cocktail loving customers. The l'Age Des Glace is a light bodied, very well balanced brandy that I can't wait to get home and use for a French 75. I found it very enjoyable and laid back without it losing its uniquely Armagnac personality. Now I need to make more room in the liquor cabinet!

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.
