"A blend of brandies aged five to ten years, Domaine Boingnères Reserve Speciale is made from Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc, and Colombard, and bottled at cask strength. A great example of how Armagnac doesn’t always mean dried fruit and sweet oak. Pure minerality and racy acidity take the lead here, with fresh fruit on the wonderfully long finish."
