Domaine Boingneres

In 2007, Domaine Boingnères celebrated its 200th anniversary. The estate was acquired in 1807 by Jean Boingnères, an ancestor of proprietor, Martine Lafitte. Located in the small commune of Le Frêche, the area has perhaps the best growing soil of the Bas-Armagnac. The Boingnères estate vineyards cover 21 hectares, 13 which are planted in Folle Blanche, 4.5 in Colombard, and 4 in Ugni Blanc. Average yield per hectare is between 80 and 90 hectoliters. As per tradition, Armagnac is released without being reduced in alcohol and as Martine Lafitte is a strict traditionalist, the Armagnacs of Boingnères are released at cask strength to ensure their absolute purity.
