Domaine de Maouhum K&L Exclusive XO Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1217788

Chateau Maouhum is today being completely run by Christelle Lasseignou, who began to take over for her parents more than a decade ago. Don't let her stylish clothes and her good looks fool you, she's a farmer through and through. She does everything at the chateau herself, from the vineyards to the distillation, to the management of the barrels. We were very excited to taste her stuff and even more impressed after we had finished. One of our favorite things about Chateau Maouhum is that the vineyards are just a few steps from the warehouse, so you can get a sense of the property while you taste. Christelle's grapes are all baco and she distills only a few barrels each year. The XO is a marriage of various ages that really balances the sweeter, raisined fruit flavor with just the right amount of new oak and spice. It's a stunning deal at $49.99 and offers a richness and elegance that even Cognac drinkers would find difficult to ignore.

A very good and fun Armagnac. It is medium bodied and soft with lovely spice notes. It is complex and delicious enough to please a veteran Armagnac drinker, and would also be a very good introduction to anyone just starting to explore the wonderful joys and flavors of Armagnac.

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.
