More Info

  • The Armagnac distillation process uses column (continuous) stills. The white wines with their final yeast lees (8-10% ABV) the become eaux de vie (52-60% ABV). At this stage, Armagnac has already a very rich and fruity taste, but it is the slow aging process in carefully chosen oak barrels which imparts its complexity
