1998 Domaine de Baraillon K&L Exclusive Folle Blanche Vintage Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1139711

We've expanded our selection from one of our favorite Armagnac producers: Domaine de Baraillon. After the success of last year's 1985 vintage brandy, we wanted to introduce you to their younger Folle Blanche selections. This 15 year old Armagnac is distilled from 100% Folle Blanche and exhibits that same unctuous, rich, caramel-laden profile but with more spice and a dusty finish. It's a big time crowd-pleaser of an Armagnac, the kind of thing that will taste good to your great uncle Larry, but still scratch that spirits geek itch in the back of your throat. One heckuva deal as well since we brought it in directly. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

The 1998 Baraillon has nice pretty and inviting aromas. It is not a heavy spirit and has layers of flavors including a touch of earth. This is an Armagnac that is terroir driven, speaks of the location it comes from, and is interesting and fun to drink.

This is a fantastic value in aged Armagnac. Folle Blanche is really the grape that excites me. There is a combinatoin of richness and drive that I really appreciate. here it iis combined with a layered mid-palate, good complexiity and just a bit of dusty spice on the finish. I loved the 1995, but for only three years younger, you get this at a 40% discount. If you wait too long, the staff is likely to make a serious dent in our supply.

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.
