L’ENCANTADA 1996 Domaine Lous Pibous
Lous Pibous means the poplars in the Gascon dialect. Located in Mauléon dArmagnac in the heart of the Bas-Armagnac region, this estate ages its spirits in new oak barrels from the region. Made from the Folle Blanche grape variety, this 1996 vintage boasts remarkable finesse and power. The new oak lends incredible class to its flavour and aromatic palette while ensuring it remains as close as possible to the grape variety, keeping its feet firmly on the ground.
Profile: elegant. The fine but rich nose (candied oranges, beeswax) develops into balsamic notes (cedar). The palate is floral (lily of the valley, lilac) and light.
