Chateau de la Grangerie is a property that was built in the 17th century right next to an old monastery. The church and the housing for its servants was actually built in the 11th and 12th centuries and since the Armagnac is aged inside that facility, it might be the only spirit at K&L matured on hallowed grounds. Like many Tenereze producers, Grangerie distills only ugni blanc for its brandies. However, the sandy and gravel-rich soils are much more like the terrain found in the Bas-Armagnac. They fill about ten barrels a year; two of which are used for Floc de Gascogne and one goes to Pruneau: a prune-flavored brandy made by macerating the Armagnac with the dried fruit also grown on the property. This 2005 vintage expression has more punch than the other brandies we've imported from Grangerie and with no added sweeteners or caramel the spirit comes across almost like a Highland single malt with strong notes of vanilla and a creamy texture on the finish. There is still a gorgeous brandy eau-de-vie character, however, and while not as heavily oaked or rich as what we see from other Tenereze producers like Pellehaut, this is one of the most graceful Armagnacs we've found thus far and one heck of a bargain for the money.
