Eric Artiguelongue selects only the finest vintages to sell under his own brand. Armagnacs are becoming more and more popular as their delicious qualities are being discovered worldwide.
|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.|
