Armagnac is the oldest and most prestigious eau-de-vie of France wine. In the sixteenth century, it was sold in pharmacies as "medicine". From the 17th century, Armagnac was aged in oak barrels. Today, the Armagnac region is divided into 3 production areas: Bas-Armagnac, Ténarèze, Haut-Armagnac. Unlike Cognac, Armagnac has a palette of varietals all different from each other, allowing a particular aromatic balance: the Bacco contributes to the structure and gives full, rich, heavy aromas that require a long aging to express all their roundness , their sweetness and their length in the mouth. La Folle Blanche brings freshness and fruitiness in the first years of aging. Ugni white, ideal for distillation, and Colombard complete the list of the most widespread grape varieties in the region. From 15 years of aging, we find in the Armagnac flavors of hazelnut, orange peel, cocoa, prune which are mixed with aromas of rose, verbena, leather, vanilla and even cinnamon. These Armagnacs have a "fat" and a roundness that exude the terroir. After 25 years, the Armagnacs lose their strength and soften. Their original character fades and gives way to the aromas of oak barrels; their length in the mouth becomes remarkable. vanilla and even cinnamon.
