Monsieur Artiguelongue was the master blender for Chateau de Laubade (a favorite Armagnac house around here) for thirty years. His eponymous label offers an insight into his soulful practice of creating sensational Armagnac. Matured in Gascony oak for 15 years this shows bold aromatics of cocoa, coffee and earth. An intensely rich palate offers unparalleled depth and complexity, especially for a bottle coming in at under $70. A pristine brandy, with no added coloring or sugars, this is what we’re drinking after a great meal any day of the week!
