Darroze Unique Collection Armagnac

We have 1 bottle of each in stock now at Forsyth

Darroze Unique Collection Bas-Armagnac
In the Armagnac region, when one decides to sell a product in its original vintage, the law requires a minimum of 10 years ageing in oak barrels.
The desired balance between flavours, tannins and alcohol is actually reached after 15 years. We bottle only when we receive an order so as to maximize the ageing phase. Indeed, once bottled and unlike wine, Armagnac no longer ages (this is true of all spirits)

Domaine de Lamarquette has belonged to the Martres family for generations; a member of the most recent generation is also a well known French economist. The estate is located west of the Bas Armagnac terroir, on the edge of the Landes forest. The union of tawny sandy terroir and the baco grape produces particularly fine Armagnacs.

For years, Mr. Bachala was a lion tamer in the Zavatta circus before turning his hand to armagnac production in the late ’70s. The humid conditions in his ageing cellars have contributed to the fact that his armagnacs have a lower alcohol level.
