1986 Domaine de Baraillon 30 Year Old K&L Exclusive Armagnac
The Schtick: “Just in time for the 30-year birthday parties of 2016 comes the 1986 vintage from Domaine de Baraillon, one of the most beloved of the small Armagnac produces we work with exclusively here at K&L. The Claverie family has become renowned around our retail stores for their robust, rich, and old school brandies; spirits of grit, complexity, and power. This 30-year-old expression captures all of those elements entirely, bringing the intensity of an older bourbon with the dark fruit and caramel of a sherry-aged Scotch. Its all made, however, on a tiny farm in the middle of Gascony. There are cows, chickens, and pigs running around the estate each time we visit. Its the epitome of quaint country French spirit. And the spirit that derives from it!” – KLWines.
