About
De Montal Armagnac is a distinguished spirit known for its exquisite balance and depth, hailing from the Gascony region of France. Crafted from a blend of grape varieties including Ugni Blanc, Baco Blanc, and Folle Blanche, this Armagnac presents a complexity and richness that is neither too dry nor sweet, appealing to a wide range of palates. It is distilled and aged in oak barrels, contributing to its unique character and standing as a testament to the traditional methods of Armagnac production.
Producer
DeMontal have probably the most modern distillery in the region and their methods of both viticulture and viniculture are hugely sophisticated. DeMontal makes great armagnac but also many wines from their 700 hectare estate. The advantages are that their quality is always exceptionally high and individuality between vintages is much harder to identify. The distillery is state of the art and it is claimed that the grapes spend less than 10 minutes between vineyard and press to minimize SO2 content. The pressings are in stainless steel pneumatic drums and the distillation is on very light lees. The method of vinification is altogether natural, the addition of anything artificial being forbidden. The wine is distilled right after harvest time so as to preserve a maximum amount of aromas. Stability of DeMontal quality is quite unique!
