Soils: the Salles d’Armagnac and Bourrouillan communes, with light soils on gentle slopes, facing south-east which receive an exceptional amount of sunshine.
- Le Colombard: fairly early white grape vine whose grape juice is of fine quality and has a fruity taste reminiscent of liquorice and mint.
- L’ugni Blanc: later white grape vine with acid grape juice contributing freshness and balance.
- Le Gros Manseng: provides strong, fruity and very sweet grape juice.
Blending the fruit of these vines (60% Colombard, 30% L’ungi Blanc and 10% Gros Manseng) to ensure a fruity, full flavoured floc.
This white liqueur wine (16/17 % Vol) is made by muting partially fermented wine and selected armagnacs with a minimum alcohol strength of 52 % Vol, all from the best Bas-Armagnac vineyards.
The partially fermented wine is the finest quality of the ‘fleur d’Armagnac’ containing a minimum of 170g of sugar per litre, the sugar being added either prior to fermentation or at the very beginning of the process in order to ensure improved alcohol-sugar balance.
Only the best vines have been selected and matched with their most suitable types of soil. The vineyards have been classified by the INAO (national controlled origin Institute).
