Founded in 1832 under Napoleon III, Castarede is the oldest Armagnac trading house in existence. Their vineyards are situated in the heart of the Bas-Armagnac region and are planted with Folle Blache, Colombard and Saint-Emillion varietals, which are carefully monitored to ensure quality. After the distillation process, the Armagnacs are aged in black oak barrels for a number of years in the family's 100 year old cellars. One is situated on the banks of the Baise river at Pont de Bordes, which is an exceptional location for aging Armagnac due to the temperature-regulating effect of the river. The other is surrounded by their vineyards in Bas-Armagnac.
Reserve de la Famille boasts full, harmonious aromas of ripe fruit, leather and spice with hints of toasty oak. The palate is smooth and slightly sweet with complex layers of toffee, nutmeg, vanilla and honey that follow through to the creamy, long lasting finish.
