1992 Chateau de Laballe 22 Year Old K&L Exclusive Vintage Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1170921

Armagnac has been distilled at Domaine de Laballe since Jean-Dominique Laudet returned from the Caribbean to his native Gascony and purchased the estate in Parleboscq. It was Noel Laudet, however, who modernized the operation in the 1970s when he left his position as director at famed Bordeaux producer Chateau Beycheville in St. Julien and returned home to expand his family's estate into wine production, as well as Armagnac. After Noel, however, production at Laballe stopped until the 8th generation came back to take the reigns. Today, Cyril Laudet and his wife Julie have restarted operations at the Domaine and have recommitted to the tradition of their ancestors. Those who loved the 1996 Pellehaut or Darroze 20 year expressions from past years are going to go bonkers for this. It's a huge, rich, dark chocolate and sweet fruited entry that blasts you with baking spices and sweetness right off the bat. The richness is tempered by oak and wood along the mid-palate and the brandy finishes with a dry, savory note. This is the kind of Armagnac that changes both hearts and minds.

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.
