Armagnac L'encantada Selection 20 ans
Rich and aromatic, the Armagnac L'encantada Selection 20 ans would make a wonderful addition to any collection of fine spirits. This exceptional Armagnac has been aged for two decades in Gascony oak barrels, developing concentrated aromas and a deep amber hue. Despite its extended maturation, the terroir here is allowed to shine through. All components of the blend originate from the great Bas Armagnac region, creating a harmonized and soft impression. This brut de fût is highly aromatic, typical of eaux-de-vie from this area, showing notes of honey that explode on the palate.
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, they bottled only when they’ve reached their optimal maturity. Personally selected by the cellar master at L'encantada, all these Armagnacs are 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 south-west 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.
