Dartigalongue was established in 1838 and is run today by the fifth generation of the family. It stands as the oldest and most respected house in Bas-Armagnac. Their Brandies are distilled exclusively from grapes produced in this area. As with Grande Champagne in Cognac, Bas- Armagnac produces the finest Armagnac.
The spirits are aged to perfection in oak casks and are only bottled or blended just prior to shipping.
From the moment it leaves the still the colourless, crystal-clear eau de vie is stored in seasoned 400 litre oak casks called “pièces”.
The nose is elegant. It reveals notes of exotic fruit, orange peel, spices, leather and tobacco associated with a small note of candied orange. The palate is suave, dense, fruity, fresh, dynamic and incisive. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of dried fruit, apricot, sweet grapes, almonds, toasted and tobacco. Armagnac perfectly mastered. Good length.
