Details

The first origins of Baron de Sainte-Fauste go back to the reign of Henri IV when the king knighted Jean de Sainte-Fauste with the status, Baron de Sainte-Fauste, for services to the crown. Through time, the notoriety of the Sainte-Fauste family became worldwide, partly thanks to its famous coat of arms; a golden lion on a royal blue background, but principally thanks to its production of eau-de-vie, which, over time, became recognised for sublime quality Armagnac.

Additional Information

Aroma A lovely, fresh nose showing aromas of dried fruits, candied oranges and subtle hints of rancio.
Distillation Distillation is with an Armagnac type copper alembic still at around 60 - 62 degrees. The wines are distilled soon after the harvest in order to keep residual tiny lees in suspension
Flavour Fine and round in the mouth with flavours of Corinthian grapes, cinnamon and honey a superb finale of candied fruits and light wood.
Grape Variety Mainly Ugni Blanc but a proportion of Baco is also used
Reduction and Strength Gradual barrel reduction.
Viticulture The climate is soft and humid with sunny autumns and the soil is made of siliceous clay which is poor in lime, giving Bas Armagnacs a lightness and fragrance with subtle tastes
