The Dartigalongue family started to distill in 1813 and is the oldest Bas Armagnac house (founded in 1838). While Dartigalongue owns vineyards, the house has always been famous for the way it ages its Armagnacs. In order to keep the focus on that great reputation, it stopped distilling about 5 years ago and now purchases its young Armagnacs from other producers in the village. They work a lot with the local Gascon oak, which gives various spice notes and contributes to the house style.

“Vintages are typical in Armagnac and Dartigalongue has an impressive collection with most years and even some from 1829. The best sommeliers in the world choose Dartigalongue and dinners are regularly built around their Armagnacs. Menus from top Parisien establishments, including the Moulin Rouge, adorn the walls of the company’s museum that also boasts an awe inspiring number of documents from the beginning of the company’s creation.” – Amanda Garnham, French Entree

ABV: 45%

40-50 year old cognac from 100% hand harvested Ugni Blanc. Navarre is an ancient house  and the cognac comes to a natural 45% alcohol with no added water, simply through the humidity of the cellar oxidizing the barrels over a long, long period of time. Following distillation, the cognac is aged in oak barrels for 40 or 50 years. The humid environment of Domaine du Renclos (situated on a river bank) together with the mild, sunny autumns and cool breezes of the Cognac region, naturally reduce the cognac to 90 proof during its three to five decade-long beauty rest.  Jacky Navarre – a fourth-generation cognac distiller, and one of the last remaining purists in the industry tends to the estate with a simple rule of nature doing most of the work. He lives, breathes, and makes these incredible potions. However only 60 bottles exist in the US.

AWS Notes: Intense nose of orchards in at the end of Autumn. On the palate- poached pears, bitter rind, dried apricots, grapes and raisins that compliment a spicy, oaky undertone. The finish, which is long, luxurious and hedonistic, has slightly earthy notes, along with hints of cinnamon, honey and oak.

” Deep fruit notes with sweet spice interwoven invite you in. Explosive mid palate and extremely long finish will change your mind about all other Cognac you have had in the past.”

Mouthwatering aromas of rich brown sugar, ground Colombian coffee, and subtle wood spices. The palate has primary notes of molasses, hazelnuts, and lasting spice but you’ll find secondary notes emerge as it breathes in the glass. Ténarèze Armagnacs are known for their richness and expressions of dried fruits – figs, dates – and sweet spice.

Domaine d’Aurensan has blended four single cask Armagnacs from 1990, 1981, 1978, and 1973 to make this Tenareze Armagnac. In Armagnac, the age must be the youngest brandy in the blend. Technically this is a 25 year old brandy despite the 20 year age statement. There are entire casks of 1937 and 1942 in the blend as well. Only 580 liters were produced.

Varietal: 100% Ugni Blanc.

The Rozès family has been distilling Armagnac for four generations. Domaine d’Auresan is a small estate with southwest facing vineyards situated on chalky, clay soil. The latest generation, headed by sisters Sophie and Caroline, are moving the domaine to organic and biodynamic viticulture. Trying to achieve the purest spirit possible, the fermentation is done with natural yeast, no sulphur is used, and the brandies are aged in local Gascon wood casks that are 420 liters in volume. The casks are made from trees that grow on the estate. The brandies are then bottled according to their “Triple Zero” philosophy – no sugar, no coloring, no water.

“A firm and intense Armagnac that stands out for its length. This will be well appreciated by lovers of older vintages. The nose is elegant, fine and sophisticated with aromas of dried fruit, cocoa and incense. After a few minutes of aeration, superb notes of white flowers rise from the glass. On the palate, the first attack is rounded, leaving behind explosive and progressive flavors of dried fruit. The persistent finish has notes of rancio and is slightly peppery.”  – Distillery Notes
