Armagnac L'encantada Extra White
This surprising release comprises a blend of three Armagnacs, each one distilled in its own still. Armagnac L'encantada Extra White has been aged for 12 months in old oak barrels that previously contained some beautiful vintage eaux-de-vie, creating a barely-there golden hue and emphasizing the sweet fruit notes of the spirit. With its rich floral aromas, this would be perfect as the starring ingredient in an original cocktail or simply served alone, on the rocks. Simply a great expression to surprise and delight your guests with.
The producers that supply Armagnac to L'encantada have distilled their eaux-de-vie in the heart of their domains using mobile stills heated by wood fires. Aged slowly in their spirit cellars, these Armagnacs are personally selected by the cellar master at L'encantada and only bottled once they’ve reached their optimal maturity. Every expression is brut de fût, which means no coloring, sugar or water has been added. The founders Christelle, Vincent and Frédéric are first and foremost dedicated to the preservation of Armagnac craftsmanship, and over the years they have curated an exclusive collection of rare pearls, forgotten elixirs and exceptional pieces to share and savor.
Produced in the Gascony region of southwest France, between the Adour and Garonne rivers in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the history of Armagnac dates back to at least the 15th century. The terroir here is rugged and earthy, spread across rolling hills drenched in sunshine during the long summer - resulting in dark, rich and rustic eaux-de-vie with concentrated aromas. Traditionally produced using wines made from Colombard, Baco Blanc, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc grapes, Armagnac is distilled in column stills rather than pot stills, and distilled only once. The resulting spirit is generally of a low ABV - around 52% - and is then aged in oak barrels before being bottled.
Presentation of the Bottle

How to Enjoy Armagnac L'encantada Extra White
