Domaine du Cardinat

The small firm of Cardinat is based in Sarragachies, Gers in the finest cru known as Bas Armagnac. It is a family business, like so many other specialised armagnac producers, and totally dedicated to producing the finest spirits created over the years by generations of the Lalanne family. The estate is very small with only seven hectares, most of which are planted with Folle Blanche and Baco, but also with a small quantity of Colombard and Ugni Blanc which were planted in 1939. The firm is acutely aware of vintages and works hard to provide the best range possible. The distillation range is on the low side of medium meaning there is a good dominance of fruity flavours.
