A must-have addition to accompany you at a garden party.
Offering two white Armagnac with an alcohol level of either 40% or 64% - Armagnac connoisseurs are spoilt for choice. In order to achieve these different alcohol degrees the Cellar Master takes charge of the alcohol reduction by adding petites eaux (a little water), that are a blend of Armagnac and distilled water. The Cellar Master strives to restore the alcohol level each year of the aging process in order to preserve harmony and carefully bring alcohol levels down so that it is ready for consumption.
At the house of Jean Cave, the cellar Master is also responsible for maintaining and stabilising the humidity and temperature of the cellar - this is deemed essential in order to preserve the decades of perfumes, aromas, finesse and expression of the eaux-de-vie.
