Tasting Notes

Distilled at Domaine Lasalle in 1989, this spirit aged in a new single local Gascon oak cask for 29yrs prior to bottling at full proof, un-filtered and with zero additives. There is tremendous breadth and depth in this brandy and it seems to have been pulled out of cask just in time, right at the perfect moment where it seems to be at peak complexity just before the oak starts to take over a bit too much. Spot on, serious and savoury.

Staff Pick Notes

In the world of Armagnac L'Encantada is proving to be a game changer. From the phenomenal brandies they've been able to source, to the modern packaging and the not-outrageous prices, they have been knocking it out of the park. And this bottle of Lassalle is exhibit A of how they're doing everything right. Lassalle's history dates back to 1559 and lord St. Vivant de la Salle, who owned a number of vineyards in Gascony. It's a richer style made with 100% ugni blanc. and aged in used Gascon oak for 28 years. You'll find beautiful aromas of creme caramel, baking spice and forest floor, while on the palate it's rich and concentrated with dried fruit, caramel and tea leaves. Everything is seamless, harmonious, nearing perfection.
