Domaine Boingneres Bas Armagnac 1999 Folle Blanche (13 year old) 49%

Dist: 1999 Btl: 2012

Tasted: Mar 2015

Stunning, rich aromas of dried raisin, prune, apricot, dark honey and dusty spices. Quite earthy and slightly manurey with a touch of dark toffee and treacle. With time a touch of perfumed violety spice emerges.

Rich and dense with an almost sherry cask richness. Earthy barky spices, cinnamon, sultana, date and raisins come through. Lightly tannic with a light, oily rancio and developing herbal notes. Good length with hints of dusty violets, spice, earth and a slight minerality. Hmmm, the luscious dried fruit really lingers!
