Orange zest, and floral on the nose. A nice rich coating of toffee, vanilla and dried fruits on the palate. D&M Tasting Notes 

In the year 2007, Domaine Boingnères celebrated its 200th anniversary. The estate was acquired on June 20, 1807 by Jean Boingnères, an ancestor of proprietor Martine Lafitte. It is located in the small commune of Le Frêche, perhaps the best growing soil of the Bas-Armagnac.

While distillation has taken place on the property since the early part of this century, until 1951 part of their wine was sold to wine merchants and part put through a traveling still to make a few barrels of Armagnac. The small storehouse contained the crown jewels of the estate — vintages from the twenties and thirties. 

The Boingnères estate vineyards cover 21 hectares (52 acres), 13 of which are planted in Folle Blanche, 4.5 in Colombard and 4 in Ugni Blanc. Average yield per hectare is between 80 and 90 hectolitres. These grapes hit between 8% and 9% alcohol with a high acidity level — perfect for distillation.
