1987 Domaine de Papolle 28 Year Old K&L Exclusive Folle Blanche Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1229223

Domaine de Papolle was recently purchased by the Piffard family from a British businessman and today is run by the son Frederic. The estate on the property is very Gascogne, with dark wooden interiors, antique country furniture, and paintings with still-life fruit bowls, half glasses of wine, and a spreads of vegetables adorned with dead pheasants. It's quite a romantic domaine with a rustic gothic style. We loved their wonderful brandies, especially the older baco vintages from the late 70s and early 80s, but we also fell for some of the folle blanche expressions. The 1987 expression is a 28 year old folle blanche distillate that really packs the spice and the aromatics one expects from the varietal. The wood is also intensely integrated, adding serious richness to all that punch. It's a brandy that's equal parts weight and finesse. A fantastic deal as well for the price.

I don't know what it is, but this year my absolute favorite Armagnac's have all been from 1987. Beginning with a deliciously rich nose reminiscent of the inviting flavors of baked peach, nutmeg and dried orange peel, the entry is clean and poised. The mid-palate displays a smooth, velvety mouth feel and expresses a good balance of spice and wood character. The finish is marked with a smooth and subtle vanilla note. This is totally comfort drinking and well worth picking up a bottle this Holiday Season and beyond! Totally Recommended!

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.
