Marquis de Montesquiou
The distillation of Marquis de Montesquiou Armagnacs is conducted using single pass copper stills respecting the ancestral method, which confers power and character to the distillates. As a result of this first stage we obtain eaux-de-vie with great aromatic power. Marquis de Montesquiou continues the tradition by using itinerant alambics that were formerly manipulated by distillers to distill wines of surrounding properties, and therefore combining the expertise of the winemaker and the mastering of the distiller.
Voice is elegantly given to the eaux-de-vie. The passing in barrels is adjusted just to provide support to the Armagnac, while keeping freshness and a fruity character.
The eaux-de-vie and the wood form an expressive couple where each has its place and reveals itself in a beautiful harmony. This Armagnac is well balanced between maturity and freshness.
The selection of the eaux-de-vie creates an excellent harmony with the compounds of the wood that we have extracted over many years. The deep rancio operates with this excellent harmony.
