1982 L'Encantada 35 Year Old "Les Bidets #3" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1376963

Independent bottler L'Encantada understands what Armagnac lovers want because that's exactly what they are. This group of Armagnac loving friends realized that some of the region's small estates were throwing away legendary eau-de-vie to blends made by the big negociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength. Many of these estates had neither bottled Armagnac nor had any interest in marketing their precious eau-de-vie. But, our friends at Encantada realized that the soul of Armagnac exists in its terroir, history and culture. By blending these exceptional brandies into large blends you strip them of the very soul that makes this drink so special. They've committed to supporting small estates producing traditional Armagnac and bottling single casks at full strength. The results are some of the most special spirits we've ever come across. The Bidets estate is a true classic polyculture farm. They breed cattle, ducks, grow grains, managed forests and of course grapes. The family was extremely proud of their armagnac, but used the brandies as a little savings account in the barn since they had no means to market their product directly to consumers. This estate would only fill a couple of barrels on a good year so we're very lucky to have this one.

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.
