Local Wine Events: Intro to Armagnac
Armagnac, the cousin of Cognac, is a brandy that hails from the Gascony region in southwest France. Like Cognac it is produced from a base of white wine, but unlike Cognac, it goes through only a single slow distillation which produces a brandy with a round and rich flavor.
Join Wine Lovers of NYC for an exclusive tasting of this great brandy that will be led by May Matta-Aliah, the New York Armagnac Ambassador and president of In the Grape, an organization dedicated to making wine and spirits education accessible to everyone. She will present 6 wonderful Armagnacs, ending with a couple of single vintages, in addition to a welcome Armagnac Punch. This promises to be a fun and educational adventure into one of the greatest brandies of France that still remains a well-kept secret to most…but not for long.
