Folle Blanche is the historic variety of Armagnac which once dominated the vineyards before their destruction by phylloxera in 1878; it was then called the "piquepoult". Today, a few small vineyards remain, but its cultivation is very difficult.

Tasting note:

- The appearance reveals a very lovely amber hue with sparkling gold highlights.

- The nose is very subtle associating prune aromas with a light but intense rancio, and a spicy finish.

- In the mouth, the attack is pure/direct. Plenty of body with hints of preserved fruit, kirsch, and lots of spices.

- After opening, the bottom of the glass is majestic with liquorice, wooded, fat/oily notes.
