Produced by traditional methods, this 1958 vintage armagnac was distilled over 60 years ago in the Gascony region of south west France. Although production methods are similar to those used for cognac, armagnacs only have a single distillation.
|Ageing||In oak barrels usually in old and quite damp cellars.|
|Distillation||Most armagnacs have been produced using the continuous still with a series of plates over which the wines boil until the optimum level when the volatile steam is captured and then condensed.|
|Grape Variety||The main grape is Folle Blanche but Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Baco are also used.|
|Viticulture||This is close to the Bas region which is an advantage since during the Jurassic period, the ocean washed over the largely flat plains leaving a firm but sandy substrate ideal for Armagnac viticulture.|
