1993 Chateau de la Grangerie 23 Year Old K&L Exclusive Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1336773

Chateau de la Grangerie is a property that was built in the 17th century right next to an old monastery. The church and the housing for its servants was actually built in the 11th and 12th centuries and since the Armagnac is aged inside that facility, it might be the only spirit at K&L matured on hallowed grounds. Like many Tenereze producers, Grangerie distills only ugni blanc for its brandies. However, the sandy and gravel-rich soils are much more like the terrain found in the Bas-Armagnac. They fill about ten barrels a year; two of which are used for Floc de Gascogne and one goes to Pruneau: a prune-flavored brandy made by macerating the Armagnac with the dried fruit also grown on the property. If you were a fan of our now sold out 2001 Grangerie expression, the 1993 is a richer, rounder, softer version of that same flavor profile. The nose is a heady bouquet of brandied fruit and creme brulee, the palate shows a lovely vinous character that packs a supple fruit and oak combination without any additives or caramel coloring. The brandies from Grangerie are some of the prettiest and purest we've tracked down in over five years of digging through Armagnac and we're hoping to continue finding incredible deals like this moving forward.

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.
