YOUNG ARMAGNACS & BLENDS

Bas-Armagnac Appellation d’Origine Protégée

Our Bas-Armagnacs are made exclusively from the distillation of wines made on the estate and have been produced following the traditional ancestral methods.

The Armangacs are distilled once in a continuous Armagnac still, and then aged in Gascony oak barrels in our cellar until bottling.

The winemaker composes each eau-de-vie using one or several vintages to design a complex, multifaceted and unique product.

For blends, the denominations (for example VSOP, 20 years old) refer to the age of the spirit, calculated based on the youngest eau-de-vie present in the blend. For example, in our 15 years blend, the youngest eau-de-vie is at least 15 years old and may or may not be blended with other slightly older vintages to create a complex final product to the liking of the winemaker.
