"From the moment a vine is planted to the moment a vintage goes to market,
it is not uncommon that a half-century has elapsed.
Armagnac is a matter of time, of passion, of maturity,
not only in development, but also in tasting.
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of taking the time to enjoy it"
Stéphane de Luze - Owner, fifth generation.
“With the glass in hand, the Armagnacs of Briat do not let the consumer down. In fact, they epitomize the magical wonders that one can find floating in a glass of Gascon spirit. As grape blends, barrels and vintage conditions vary, there is no standard that is replicated year after year. What is consistent is tremendous quality: always lots of nose, a rich palate feel, and excellent length. ” source http://www.postwines.com/sku22026.html

Armagnac is a matter of time, of taste and of passion. Tradition and techniques passed down from father to son for 5 generations have created a unique and special family identity around this Armagnac...
One of the main features of Pichon-Longueville Armagnac is the distillation method...
We are constantly striving to re-interpret Armagnac while never betraying it's true characteristics...
