Tasting Notes

We're extremely lucky to have connected with Encantada through an elusive tasting group called "The Brandy Brothers." They secured several casks of some of Encantada's prime stocks, but what they didn't purchase we offer to you as an exclusive for K&L's growing base of Armagnac lovers. The Encantada brand was started by enthusiasts and represents some of the finest stocks the region has to offer. Lous Pibous is one of the exceptional estates that's bottled exclusively by Encantada. They produce wine from Folle Blanche and age entirely in new oak barrels sourced from local forests. The immaculate Lous Pibous estate is located near Mauléon-d'Armagnac in that magic region right on the border of the Gers and Landes. Only 5 minutes to the west you'll find the Claverie family at Domaine Baraillon and countless other exceptional producers. Yet Lous Pibous does not bottle their own exceptional Armagnac. Instead, Encantada selects the finest casks from each vintage and bottles them without addition of water, caramel or sugar of any kind. This is truly pure eau-de-vie that remains untouched between barrel and bottle. The full strength, Folle Blanche, and new oak result in one of the most heady and powerful Armagnacs we've ever seen. Dense and woodsy, it is closer to old bourbon whiskey than any brandy on the shelf. Despite the intense oak, the eau-de-vie is balanced and rich. Sweet and deep, dark savory notes explode on the palate. Thank you, brothers, for sharing this with us.
