Vintage Armagnac 2000 'Folle Blanche'

Vintage Armagnac, 2000, 'Folle Blanche', Chateau de Pellehaut

Vintage Armagnac, 2000, 'Folle Blanche', Chateau de Pellehaut
  • Vintage Armagnac distilled by Château de Pellehaut in Monteal-du-Gers in the Ténarèze appellation of the Armagnac region
  • Distilled in 2000 from 100% Folle Blanche on a traveling wood-fired alambic Armagnacais (short column still)
  • Current lot was bottled in 2022; aged in French oak casks for 21 years (age range increases lot to lot)
  • Rich aromas of bruléed sugar and brioche complemented by dusty Ceylon cinnamon and dried baby’s breath taper to a zippy palate of red apple skin and thyme with a dry, faintly vinous finish.
  • 49.3% ABV (ABV varies lot to lot)

It’s hard to believe that someone of legal drinking age could be gifted this bottling as a birth-year Armagnac, but here we are—time marches on! 21+-year brandy feels celebratory by nature, but don’t sleep on this surprisingly accessible expression in both flavor and price.
