Armagnac: The Definitive Guide to France's Premier Brandy

Armagnac: The Definitive Guide to France's Premier

Armagnac is France’s premier brandy, not only because it was the first but also because it is the preference of true connoisseurs. And while armagnac is often compared to its closest relative Cognac, the two brandies are distinctly different. In this detailed study, Charles Neal takes us to Gascony, in the hidden backwoods of Southwestern France. All the factors that go into making a great Armagnac are explained, as are the differences between it and Cognac. Insights into blending and the use of permitted additives are fully discussed. Also included are profiles of the region’s most influential négociants, objective tasting notes on their products, even information on how to match Armagnac with your favorite cigar. More important, however, is the focus on the region’s real heart and soul, the producers of traditional Armagnac. Within their unrectified Armagnacs from a single year, subtle notes of prune, apricot, vanilla, spice and nuts converge to become heavenly. A deep, penetrating, natural sweetness of fruit remains on the palate for minutes, and when smelling the empty snifter the next day, one can be reminded of the memorable scent of un vrai Armagnac. Included here are: biographies and reviews of over 140 producers and négociants; precise differences between Armagna...

Armagnac: The Spirit of Gascony

Armagnac: The Spirit of

Gascony is one of the finest unspoilt areas left in France and its armagnac brandy is different from others, being the product of different soils and climate as well as different methods of distillation. The earliest documented evidence of the distillation of brandies in Gascony dates back to 1411, making armagnac older than cognac by some 200 years. Today, production is centred around six small towns and villages, while a further 50 or so "hidden" domains distil their own, largely for sale direct to private customers and selected restaurants. In spite of developments since the beginning of this century, such as the growth of certain blending and shipping houses and the introduction of "appellations controlees", the Gascons remain resistant to the new "invasion" by cognac houses. Ewald Junge attempts to capture the spirit of the Gascony region of France, describing the history of armagnac and trends in its production and distribution, including information on where to find it in Britain. Travel tips on what to see and where to stay in the region are also supplied.
