Armagnac, ‘Reserve – 10yr Old’, Chateau de Pellehaut

Domaine de Pellehaut is situated at the highest point in the district of Montreal du Gers 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. At Pellehaut, 2 varieties are used in the production of eau de vie: Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche. The vinification of the wines destined for distillation consists of aging on the lees with regular battonnage. After leaving the alembic still after the “simple chauffe,” the eau de vie is place in 400 liter oak barrels. Proofing is finish with spring water which has also been rested in French oak.

Tasting Notes

Made from a blend of Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche, this Tenareze Armagnac is full bodied and powerful, yet displays a finesse which belies its youth.  French oak speaks as loud as any American wood in this potent brandy – an ideal midpoint between the snifter and the mixing glass.
