Armagnac, as some locals will describe it to visitors is the oldest and the youngest spirit in France. Oldest because it was first distilled in the middle of the 15th century and youngest because the Armagnacaise are still arguing over how to distil it. Armagnac comes as a welcome contrast to the relative stagnation in Cognac. Read More »
A 1930 vintage Armagnac from Croix de Salles, a house founded by Pascal Dartigalongue and still owned by the family as of 2013. They are based in a vineyard named "Lacroutz" in the town of Salles d'Armagnac in the heart of the region. This is an excellent example of old Bas-Armagnac.
A very rare bottle of 1925 vintage armagnac probably bottled in the mid to late 1990s, this is part of a series of vintage bottlings released for collectors by the Dupeyron house which was founded in 1905.
Very rare to find any spirit from a WWII vintage, so this is a real testimony to the bravery of the producer as well as the quality of this Armagnac, which was bottled in 1995 at fifty years of age. Awesome stuff.
