A MARRIAGE OF CREATIVITY AND TRADITION

At present we have in our ageing storage cellars armagnacs from more than 30 different estates located in various parts of Bas-Armagnac. The villages of Labastide d’Armagnac, Arthez d’Armagnac, Le Frêche, Villeneuve de Marsan, Le Bourdalat, Lacquy, Perquie, Hontanx, Mauléon d’Armagnac and du Houga have vineyards producing the best brandies. This area is what was used to be called “Grand Bas-Armagnac”. It is in this area of 15×25 kilometres that we focus with determination our never-ending quest to discover and hopefully acquire yet another small quantity (a cask here, a dame-jeanne there) of the characterful Armagnacs so typical of the region.

Château de La Brise, Domaine de Capdepont, Domaine de Touja, Domaine de Mahu, Domaine de Cavaillon, de Saint Aubin… have made the reputation of our company. Today they are replaced by the estates of Au Martin, Salié, Peyron, Jouanchicot, Coquillon, Monturon, Aux Ducs ou autres Aux Durre, Poutéou, Paguy, Busquet, Piheron, Bertruc, Gaube, Pounon and Peyrot but all are from this magic triangle of the “grand” Bas-Armagnac.

In the Armagnac region, when one decides to sell a product in its original vintage, the law requires a minimum of 10 years ageing in oak barrels.

The desired balance between flavours, tannins and alcohol is actually reached after 15 years. We bottle only when we receive an order so as to maximise the ageing phase. Indeed, once bottled and unlike wine, Armagnac no longer ages (this is true of all spirits). For this reason we always include the date of bottling on the label, which attests to the real age of the armagnac.
 The particularity and the typicity of the UNIQUE COLLECTION is explained by the fact that the Darroze family refuse :

To blend their eaux-de-vies in order to make a common product, thereby wiping out all the characteristics that the soil, climate and the varieties have given. Each Bas-Armagnac offered is different and respects the work of the wine grower by reproducing the name of the property on the bottle. To blend different vintages. Each year gives an Armagnac with different characteristics. This is why the original vintage is reproduced in order to preserve, as much as possible, the diversity of the products in the region. To add water to their spirits in order to reduce the alcohol content. In fact, by diluting Armagnac with water (authorised practice), one dilutes the aromatic potential and erases the differences of one terroir as opposed to another. It’s like removing the powerful influence of the soil on the product, which is one of the most interesting things about Armagnac.
