A former Cellar Master at the renowned Armagnac estate of Chateau de Laubade for 22 years, Eric Artiguelongue struck out on his own and started blending Armagnac under his own label back in 2005. Working primarily with small growers and distillers with whom he has forged strong relationships with, Eric ensures consistent high quality. Over the last decade Eric has sourced and created a whole range of blends and vintages, allowing him to express all the best aromas and flavors of this exceptional appellation.
Crafted from 60% Ugni Blanc, 10% Colombard, 10% Folle Blanche and 20% Baco, with each grape varietal is fermented separately, Eric Artiguelongue XO 15 Year Old Bas Armagnac is distilled only once in the artisanal "Armagnacais" still. This armagnac is aged for fifteen years in Gascony Oak from the "Monlezun Forest" and blended with distilled water before bottling at 40% ABV. This golden brown colored armagnac offers delicate floral aromas backed by notes of grape, pear, citrus and raw almond. The round, full-bodied palate displays fresh, fruit-forward flavors, while a touch of warming spice adds depth and complexity to the long finish.
