R.I.P. Pierre Laporte
David and I were very sad to learn last week that one of our newest Armagnac producers, Pierre Laporte from Domaine Pouchegu, recently passed away from cancer. Charles Neal and I knew he had been sick, which was why it had taken so long to get our 1986 vintage bottling together, but none of us understood the severity of the illness.
We will drink in your memory, Pierre! Your brandy is simply amazing and will continue to live on in the bottle.
