  • The Armagnacs

    Armagnac is the oldest wine brandy in France, produced according to ancestral know-how which includes 3 stages: wine-making, distillation and aging, stage which gives Armagnac additional complexity and sweetness.

    The Domaine "à Lafitte" specializes in the production of Bas-Armagnacs (Bas-Armagnac means that it is the lowest region geographically speaking, straddling the Landes and the Gers) vintages since its creation in 1945. “Because a vintage is proof of excellence and meticulous work from the producer."

    To produce these Armagnacs, the domain works mainly with Baco (hybrid grape variety resulting from the mixture between Folle Blanche and Noah) which gives the spirits roundness, sweetness and aromas of ripe fruit, particularly after long aging; and with Ugni Blanc, the distillation grape par excellence that produces acidic, low-alcoholic wines, and which after distillation produces fine and quality brandies.

    The range of Armagnac produced by the Domaine "à Lafitte" is simply exceptional and very rich. When you taste the different vintages, you will discover all the subtleties of the flavors that have developed over the years. A variation of notes which reveals tastes such as prunes, nuts, cocoa, etc.

    The Armagnacs are available in a bottle box and some vintages in a carafe. The preparation of the products is done by hand. All bottles are sealed with wax with the domain seal, which reinforces the uniqueness and elegance of the Armagnac "à Lafitte".
