Wow! We knew we had found something special when we rolled up to this at the property back in April. By the way this is one of the coolest domain's in Armagnac - warehousing in an ancient church, blooming wisteria, a proprietor who was as humble as he was kind. Delicious plum preserves being made on site as well. But, when we tasted these 2001s we knew that we wouldn't need that story to sell this stuff. It's just perfectly complex with everything you'd ever want from a young brandy and much much more. Ultra aromatic, dense forward stone fruit preserves, this almost reminds me of old school highland scotch of the highest order. That's the other thing about this brandy, it's got texture. For a lot of the whisky people, we hear that they have trouble getting fully into brandy because they don't get quite the mouth feel they want. That's not a problem here. With a nice 90 proof, the Richness and length are striking and persistent in equal proportions. An incredible value and truly an historic find for us.
