93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "As intense as it is so very varietally precise, this is an exceptional Syrah of considerable scope and authority whose deeply fruited, distinctly peppery aromas quickly draw one in and, if anything, are surpassed in richness and range by the wine’s even deeper, altogether complete flavors. Unabashedly ripe and very full-bodied without intimating heaviness and still on the youthfully sinewy side on the palate, this is one that in no uncertain terms begs for cellar time, and it is guaranteed to reward six to ten years of age ...

1976 L'Encantada 42 Year Old "Domaine Le Sablé #19" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
This wonderful cask of ultra mature Armagnac is proof that we're still in an absurd state with regards to the price of old brandy from Gascogne. This rare product comes from a domaine that only produced 3 vintages - 1973, 1974 and 1976. We were lucky to acquire a cask of 1974 before they completely sold out and have worked hard to keep in Encantada's good graces. We were overjoyed to have been offered this exceptional barrel at more or less the same price as the one we sold previously. Sablé was a very traditional production using itinerant distillers an...

94 points James Halliday: "The youthful colour has the depth to promise abundant black fruits, whole berry fermentation underlining the promise. It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet."

1995 L'Encantada 24 Year Old "Lous Pibous #146" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $250) (Elsewhere $250)
Top Pick!
The phenomenon that is Lous Pibous is unmatched in modern booze culture. Their rise to prominence in the eyes of the cognoscenti was so precipitous, it could never have been predicted. Truly, a modern legend. It was an overnight success. This tiny estate been anointed as one of the great Gascogne estates. The inherently limited nature of the stocks has created a stir. The golden age of brandy is here and Pibous might be its peak. It might have been lost completely had it not been for the great work of our partners at L'Encantada. We were very lucky to im...

1988 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Frêche #17" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
The wonderful and mysterious "Domaine Le Frêche" is becoming, much like Encantada's other famous estate Lous Pibous, quite well regarded. Also like Lous Pibous, Le Frêche is not the name of the domaine itself, but a place holder used by the bottlers. Because of this secrecy there's much speculation regarding the source of the spirit. Unfortunately for those seeking truth there are easily 10+ excellent producers in the little village, so take a guess. The most famous is the incredible Boingniere, whose Armagnacs are extremely sought-after and expensive. I...
