1986 Domaine de Baraillon 30 Year Old K&L Exclusive Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1255348

Just in time for the 30-year birthday parties of 2016 comes the 1986 vintage from Domaine de Baraillon, one of the most beloved of the small Armagnac produces we work with exclusively here at K&L. The Claverie family has become renowned around our retail stores for their robust, rich, and old school brandies; spirits of grit, complexity, and power. This 30-year-old expression captures all of those elements entirely, bringing the intensity of an older bourbon with the dark fruit and caramel of a sherry-aged Scotch. It's all made, however, on a tiny farm in the middle of Gascony. There are cows, chickens, and pigs running around the estate each time we visit. It's the epitome of quaint country French spirit. And the spirit that derives from it!

We keep getting in these amazing direct import Armagnacs and I feel it is rather unfair—because it is hard to choose. Nevertheless when I tasted this one from 1986 I responded immediately to it. Rich caramels in the nose are also found in the body layered with notes of butterscotch and a hint of dark cheery pit. Although this is a rich decedent Armagnac, it is still really well balanced and super smooth. Low heat on the finish means that this might go down a little too easily.

This 30 year old Baraillon is an full bodied powerhouse.It is soft and round with deep concentrated flavors. There are tons of fruit flavors intermixed with an interesting earthiness. It is complex and a joy to drink. Baraillon Armagnacs are always a favorite treat.

- 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.
