Château de Laubade

Bas Armagnac Folle Blanche/Ugni Blanc/Colombard 2000

I am tasting the 2000 vintage. The first aroma I get is just oak, almost sterile, like an impeccably clean hardware store. Leaving the glass a few moments to give contact with air opens up softer aromas of nougat and plum. The taste is about exactly like that: oak in your face all at once to yield quickly to nougat candy, plum, and raisin, but letting the brandy sit in my mouth causes it to turn into lovely cigar tobacco flavors with milk chocolate. Slight hint of saffron-infused chocolate on the finish, but then it fades back into that really strong neutral wood as the finish lingers. — 3 hours ago

Sherry-Lehmann Founder's Reserve Armagnac 1987

Amazingly smooth. Tony is in love with it. I wish for a bit more complexity but that’s a nit-pick. Hell of a cognac and an incredible deal. — 7 days ago

Clos Triguedina

Prince Probus Cahors Malbec 2000

Dark. Black even. Abundant nose of black plum. Echoed on the full-bodied, well structured palate adding birch and hints of blackberry and tar. Still a lot or time left in the bottle, though it fades relatively quickly in the glass. Otherwise, awesome. — a day ago
