700 & Ortolan by Louis Marie de Castelbajac!
Armagnac is the oldest wine based eau-de-vie produced in the heart of Gascony, South West France. It is produced by a single distillation of white wine in an Armagnac alambic (still) and then left to age for many years in oak barrels before being sold. It is available in vintages that are specific to Armagnac, or indeed in several different blends.
The Armagnac areas of production and its methods of fabrication strictly follow the rules and regulations laid down by the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée attributed to this eau-de-vie in 1936.
Above all, Armagnac is a hand crafted product, produced in small quantities by the winemakers and negotiant houses, custodians of the time-honoured savoir-faire. The diversity of the different terroirs and grape varieties give this eau-de-vie a rich and diverse character that reflects the nature that surrounds it and the men that make it.
