Top Armagnac by chefs and sommeliers in gastronomic restaurants

Armagnac is a spirit which comes exclusively from France. It is an alcohol whose popularity is on the increase throughout the world, with a production of more than 7 million bottles. How about trying one of the greatest Armagnacs? Bestwine • Online the wine list from gastronomic restaurants introduces you to a selection of Armagnacs chosen by chefs and sommeliers from the greatest gastronomic establishments each year.

The Regions of France which produce Armagnac are the Gers, the Landes and Lot-et-Garonne. Armagnac is made from white wine which is aged in oak barrels. This ageing gives Armagnac its brown, copper or golden colour according to the production.

Different types of Armagnac can be distinguished by several names of origin:

  • Bas-Armagnac: Armagnac produced in the Western Gers and the Landes.
  • Armagnac-Ténarèze: Armagnac produced in Northern Gers and Lot-et-Garonne.
  • Haut Armagnac: Armagnac produced South of the Armagnac producing region.

There is also a White Armagnac which denominates Armagnac which has not been aged in a wooden cask White Armagnac is translucent.

Categories of Armagnac:

  • Armagnac *** (three star) or “VS” (Very Special): Armagnac aged in an oak barrel for at least a year.
  • Armagnac “VSOP” (Very Superior Old Pale): Armagnac aged in an oak barrel for at least 4 years.
  • Armagnac “Napoléon” or Armagnac “XO” (Extra Old): Armagnac aged in an oak cask for at least 6 years.
  • Armagnac “hors d’âge”: Armagnac aged in an oak cask for at least 10 years.
  • Armagnac “XO premium”: Armagnac aged in an oak barrel for at least 20 years.

As it can be consumed as an aperitif or a liqueur, Armagnac is greatly appreciated for its originality in gastronomic restaurants. The white grape fermented in wooden casks allows the production of authentic flavours. Furthermore, each grape variety used in the production of Armagnac, also gives it a diversity in aromas. The alcohol content is on average 40%. In gastronomic restaurants, Armagnac is savoured neat in small glasses (6 or 9 cl) with a narrow neck like a whisky glass. The reduction in the size of the neck of the glass, allows the aromas of the Armagnac to be more concentrated. The flavour of Armagnac is influenced by its origins and its region of production. Bas-Armagnac is fruity with notes of plums, Armagnac-Ténarèzes is full-bodied with spicy and floral notes of violet and Haut-Armagnac tends to be more rustic. As for White Armagnacs, they are consumed neat like all white spirits. White Armagnac can be cooled in the fridge or by adding ice-cubes (on the rocks). White Armagnac can also be mixed (long drink) with sparkling or still water, soda, or fruit juice to make creative cocktails.

Armagnac can be vintage, in which case, it must only be made with grapes harvested in the year indicated on the label.
