Domaine d'Ognoas Reserve Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1285471

A property that's been in existence since the 1200s, Ognoas spends much of its time as an agricultural school and a training ground for young distillers. Because of their status as a "co-op" of sorts, the operation is partly subsidized by the French government, which means the prices are insanely low! Lucky us! Ognoas uses local trees for their cooperage and puts a medium toast on the barrel for a kiss of sweetness in the brandy. This roughly ten year old edition of Ognoas is a great alternative to the other $50-ish Armagnacs we offer, mainly because it stands out from the pack with its lush fruit and reserved oak character. There's a creaminess to the palate with oily fruit and soft caramel that oozes in waves towards the finish. For those looking for more finesse in their Armagnac, Ognoas is a great place to start.

For those of you who enjoyed our Ognoas XO editions of the past, this is pretty much the same Armagnac. A gorgeous, round, and elegant sipping Armagnac with plenty of fruit and soft richness for a great price. This batch is based on the 2006 vintage, so it's a minimum of 10 years of age. I've drunk two bottles already and we just got this in last week :)

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.
