After 10 years in contact with the oak, Armagnac starts to take on the aromas of ageing. The fruit that is still present, is accompanied by the first aromas of soft spices such as liquorice and cinnamon. Still quite fiery, this eau de vie will become more complex after a few minutes breathing in your glass.

Producer
For three generations, the Darroze family has been dividing its time and passions between cooking and Armagnac. The adventure started in the 1950s and 1960s when Jean Darroze scaled the heights with the family restaurant in Villeneuve de Marsan, right in the heart of Bas-Armagnac. He shared his passions and his work with his children all of whom played a part in the national and internationally renowned family restaurant. It was here that Francis, the youngest member of the family, was in charge of the wine list and of course the Armagnacs. During his regular visits to the different vineyards, Francis acquired an extraordinary collection of eaux de vies coming from all different areas in the Bas Armagnac region. At the beginning of the 1970s, Francis decided to age the eaux de vies himself, in his own cellar and under his sole control. He hunted throughout the Gascony countryside far and wide searching for the best barrels from different estates. In more than 30 years, the Darroze family collection grew and today amounts to an impressive 250 different armagnacs coming from 30 properties and including more than 50 vintages. Today, Helene, the eldest daughter of Francis, continues the family culinary tradition. Her restaurants in Paris are well known for the quality of the products and the sincerity of their cuisine. Her brother Marc, trained as an oenologist, takes care of the Armagnacs’ ageing. He works with the same rigor and passion that characterizes his father.
