Chateau de Pellehaut Reserve Armagnac
"This Armagnac shows a bit differently from the vintage Pellehauts currently on the market. The addition of Folle Blanche to the blend gives a yellow flower and chamomile tea character that doesn’t appear to be found in the vintages. The addition of water to lower the alcohol to 42.5% also lowers the general viscosity and eases some of the grippy oak tannins that older expressions show. All of this being said, this makes for an excellent introduction to the category, but may be a hair too soft for dyed-in-the-wool Armagnac fans. They should seek out the very good 1989 vintage for around 20 dollars more a bottle."
