After a rainy and mild spring, the vine was quickly calmed by a cold and rainy month. The sunny and warm summer settled in June-July with sometimes stormy passages favoring late blight. The harvest of the Folles Blanches began in September and followed in October, giving wines low in alcohol with perfect acidity.
Alcohol content at bottling:
Date of distillation:
100% Folle Blanche
Color: deep amber hue, beautiful shine. Nose: very elegant and refined aromas of chestnut honey, cedarwood, almond, a hint of balsamic. Palate: supple attack, with a nice sensation of roundness and sweetness, followed by a development towards a solid and tasty structure. It is firm and in the middle of the palate takes on a rawer character to finish with very spicy sensations. Comment: a Bas-Armagnac with a double personality, silky at the start and rich in the finish. 92/100 (Paolo Basso, Best Sommelier of The Year 2013)
