A single vintage Armagnac made with Folle Blanche, the primary grape grown on the Domaine Boingneres vineyard.
Folle Blanche Armagnac - 1999 was tasted at Meeting No. 32 on January 29, 2015. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.60. Folle Blanche Armagnac - 1999 ranks 2nd overall in Armagnac. Costing $126, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.
Nose: Rose hips, strawberry, like the sugary milk left over in your bowl of corn pops. I COULDN'T STOP SMELLING IT. Palate: Curvy and supple with a simmering warmth.
Powerful bite of alcohol, followed by a wave of spicy fruit and sweetness, easing into a long very slow fade of zesty spice.
More rubber cement aromas. Sharp tongue! Sticks around on your upper lip! Sweet candy with a kick.
A bit more lively on the nose than the previous three--bay rhum, allspice, tea. Light bodied in spite of the nose; leathery whiskey notes on the palate, followed by a hit of cherry minty spice from the nose also on the finish.
Very fruity with a nice bite to it! A little on the bold side. It leaves a creaminess in your mouth and wanting for more.
Nail polish nose. Bright and Spicey first sip - wood sap lingering sweetness.
Almond nose! Marzipan, grape, band-aid flambe!
