A know how
With more than 175 years of experience, devotion and work, our family has acquired the ability to select the best possible Bas Armagnac products then distill to perfection and mature the resulting, typically French brand.
A family heritage
Our family possesses two cellars more than one hundred years old:
One is located on the banks of the Baïse river at Pont de Bordes (Lavardac) in the Lot-et-Garonne department. This area is the veritable centre of wine trading for, in the past, most transport took place by water.
This cellar for ageing the Armagnac is a veritable "eco museum" and has been preserved in the same spirit as when it was founded in the 19th century. Specialists consider it to be exceptional for ageing Armagnac since the adjacent Baïse river creates remarkable local isothermic conditions. This is the cellar of choice for the oldest vintages.
The other cellar, in Mauléon d'Armagnac, is situated in the Grand Bas Armagnac region as is our property, Château de Maniban. This is surrounded by vineyards planted with three different vinestocks: Folle Blanche, Colombard and Saint-Emilion
Our property in Grand Bas Armagnac
The acquisition of the Château de Maniban, situated in the heart of the Bas-Armagnac and dating back to the 16th century, has permitted us to continually monitor our vines, their picking, the distillation process and the ageing of our Armagnacs.
Our vineyards are planted with three different vinestocks: Folle Blanche, Colombard and Saint-Emilion.
We have remained faithful to the traditional method of acquiring supplies from Bas-Armagnac as these are recognised to produce the very finest brandies.
