Marquis de Montdidier Armagnac 1926
Armagnac is often wrongly said to be the little brother of Cognac. While the history of Cognac dates back to the 17th century, Armagnac was mentioned in documents as early as 1461. The distillate was used as medicine at that time.
With the expertise of the Romans, the Gauls and the Moors, Armagnac was distilled and refined over centuries. Today, this oldest French spirit enjoys a high reputation. The Armagnac comes from Gascony in the southwest of France where the corresponding grape varieties also grow and ripen. Distilled only once, this brandy is then aged in new oak barrels. These are built from six-year aged holm oak wood and give Armagnac its brilliant amber color and distinctive bouquet. The longer the Armagnac is stored in the barrels, the higher the quality level.
These old vintages of Armagnac Marquis de Montdidier are rarities. We have only this one bottle of the listed vintage left in stock.
