    Distiller Notes

    Deep orange color, slightly amber with brown tints. This vintage Armagnac clearly displays the limestone and clay minerality of the Tenareze region. Peppers, dates and cooked herbs give weight to the nose, complemented by a full and textured palate of dark chocolate and spices.

    Proof: 80

    Vinous
    Beautiful example of both Ténarèze’s minerality, from its limestone and clay soils, and a rare 100% Ugni Blanc Armagnac. With all the intense pepper and minerality, it’s still surprisingly fruit-driven, with lots of dried apricot, prune, and raisin.

    It is quite possible that there were vines planted at Pellehaut in Roman times, as the Roman villa of Seviac is only 2 kms away and has mosaics featuring vines.

    Domaine de Pellehaut is situated at the highest point in the district of Montréal du Gers (180 Metres) and today covers 530 hectares of which 180 hectares are vines. It is a true farming estate run in a traditional way by Gaston Béraut and his sons, Martin and Mathieu.

    The vinification of the wines destined for distillation consists of ageing on the lees with regular batonnage. After leaving the alambic after the “simple chauffe”, the eau de vie of the wine is placed in 400 litre oak barriques, some from the property itself, some from the Limousin forests. The last Folle blanche to be distilled is matured in 225cl Bordeaux barriques which had been used previously to age the best white wine cuvees. The reduction of the Armagnacs takes place step by step with the addition of water (a mix of distilled water and alcohol) prepared a long time in advance.

    Cardinal Vital Du Four claimed that it “cures gout and cankers, heals wounds of the skin … renders men joyous, preserves youth and retards senility.”

    Armagnac is produced in the Gascony region of Southwest France and is among the earliest of spirits produced, prescribed over the last 700 years for a myriad of therapeutic benefits. Owing to its ancient heritage, the production method is much simpler than that of its cousin, Cognac, with just a single distillation through a column still prior to barrel aging. This yields a spirit that is generally more flavorful and fragrant than other Brandies.
