2001 Chateau de Pellehaut 15 Year Old K&L Exclusive Tenareze Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1217783

While Bas-Armagnac gets all the press and the Haut-Armagnac gets completely ignored, the Tenareze region of Armagnac is quietly producing some of the best brandies in the world. Much like the Borderies region in Cognac, the Tenareze brandies seem to have more fruit and a bit more life than the more classic Armagnac style. Using only new or first-fill barrels for the beginning years of maturation, the Armagnacs have richness, weight, and spice. The 2001 vintage is going to be a bourbon-drinker's delight: there's a rich, round mouthfeel of charred oak and creamy vanilla, supplemented with more texture from the raisined fruit. It's anchored entirely in richness, and there's plenty of spice on the finish to keep it interesting. Distilled from 100% Folle Blanche (a more flavorful and complex varietal for Armagnac) it's a slam-dunk deal if there ever was one.

The 2001 offers all of the great flavors that one expects from Pellehaut Armagnacs. This vintage is soft with nice spice flavors and is very balanced and easy to drink. Not as concentrated as some of the other vintage offerings, it is a delicious pleasure to drink.

Simply one of the most delicious products in the store in any category, at any price. It has all the big wood and spice of a 14 year old bourbon, but with a lovely richness of fruit and a sweetness that rounds out the flavor on the finish. If you like bourbon, you like this--you just don't know it yet.

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.
