A white, unaged Armagnac from PM Spirits and Domaine d’Esperance, the fruit simply explodes on the palate. The nose is all grape and raisin, without a hint that it’s over 102 proof. Grapes and raisins fill the palate, fruity and sweet, with white pepper and the lightest touch of cardamom.

Fresh and fruity, with a grown-up bite, this is Highly recommended. 90 points. DBH

He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
