Gascony’s Jewel

HISTORY
Perpetuating
Armagnac Larressingle was founded in 1837 in Armagnac Tenareze, in the fortified village of Larressingle. Being one of the purest representative of the Gascony tradition, we concentrate our efforts to perpetuate its know-how and keep the Armagnac original flavour. This is why we select exclusively wines from these traditional terroirs, known for their boulbenes and clay-limestone soil. On these terroirs, the eaux-de-vie are powerful and full-bodied, holding exceptional cellaring potential.
Respect an ancestral know-how
To ensure the Armagnac tradition’s continuity, our eaux-de-vie are distilled in our centenary Armagnac stills. The craftsmanship needs years of practice to master for the distiller to fully understand the features of each eau-de-vie. Guided only by his palate, the master distiller can then adjust the gas pressure and wine flow, which also change with temperature and atmospheric pressure. We witness a true dialogue between the master distiller and the stills to produce Larressingle Armagnacs.
Ease and refine
For three years the Armagnacs are placed in new-oak barrels. The first woody notes balance the eau-de-vie and ease its progession. The barrels are, at the beginning of the process, moved in various dry and hot cellars to give to the Armagnac its roundness and, progressively, freshness and humidity. Later, the Armagnacs are transfered in used casks for their ageing and in which they may stay for years before their bottling.
