1981 Domaine Boingnères Folle Blanche Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1372363 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the finest examples of 100% Folle Blanche in all of Armagnac. This 31-year-old is light copper, with a complex floral bouquet of rose and almond blossom along with aromas of fig and candied orange that roll onto the palate, developing seamlessly into gingerbread on the midpalate and finishing fresh with notes of mint and licorice and that go on forever. Pretty, delicate, yet still dense and intense. A beautiful spirit that justifies its price. (JW) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

K&L Notes

When discussing the components of a great brandy, the soil is just as important an indicator of quality as it is to a great wine. Boingnères grows all their fruit in a majority of sand and limestone--the absolute best makeup for producing fantastic grapes. Run by Martòn Lafite, of the esteemed Château Lafite family, the Domaine also owns their own still (rather than hiring someone to bring them a still like many producers do) so they have been familiar with the workings of their distillation for decades. The single vintage Folle Blanche expression uses only stocks from Lafite's rarest varietal distillate, highlighting the floral, aromatic, and spicier notes from the finer spectrum of Armagnac flavor. Those in search of supreme complexity will be hard-pressed to find anything better than this from their brandy.
