Description

Armagnac Monluc 1950: Rooted in History

The Armagnac Monluc 1950 is a vintage Armagnac produced from grapes harvested in the autumn of 1950. It has been aged for over half a century in fine-grained oak barrels, allowing the eaux-de-vie to develop a striking color, depth of flavor and concentrated aromas. Single harvest Armagnacs such as this represent beautiful snapshots of the past, giving a glimpse into the individual characteristics created by variations in rainfall, cloud cover and temperature. The maturation in black oak casks has been followed with extraordinary attention for decades, necessary for the optimum expression of a particular harvest year.

Faithful to their strong family traditions, Monluc is the seat of an important wine estate, where they produce Armagnac, Pays de Côtes de Gascogne wines as well as various liqueurs. The Château is located in Ténarèze where the clay-limestone soils give lively and dry wines, perfect for making quality eaux-de-vie full of finesse, liveliness, complexity and suppleness. Here in the heart of Gascony, the area surrounding the Château de Monluc has been inhabited continuously since Neolithic times, with the castle evolving over centuries from the original wooden watchtower to the imposing walled mansion that it is today.

In the 16th Century, the castle was home to Blaise de Monluc (1500 - 1577), a Gascon captain who distinguished himself during his long military career to obtain the office of Marshal of France at the age of 74, in gratitude for services rendered for no less than five different kings of France. These days, it is home to the fifth generation of Armagnac producers, expressing a passion rooted in terroir and history. With the ardour of a Gascon captain, here they aim to help people discover and appreciate the art of Armagnac for years to come. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The classic, straight bottle features a deep punt and a wax emblem matching the foil. The label is intricate with rough-cut edges, calligraphy lettering and gold foil, while the vintage is prominently displayed. The wooden box features a simple gold clasp, emphasizing the elegant simplicity of this expression. 

How to Serve Armagnac Monluc 1950

We recommend serving this elegant vintage Armagnac as a digestif - pair with dessert or a cigar for the ultimate indulgence. Pour into a tulip glass, but allow the spirit to rest for up to a minute before taking a sip - this will allow the aromas to fully develop and express every delicate nuance of this single harvest.
