Details

"Maison Castarede is a family-run Armagnac house with centuries of distilling history. It is based just south of the town Mauleon d'Armagnac within the Bas Armagnac subregion. The Castarede estate has a 17th century chateau that has been the site of distillation and aging since it was acquired by the family in the late 20th century.


The Chateau de Maniban estate covers 16 hectares (40 acres) of vineyards, primarily planted with Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Baco Blanc, which was introduced into the vineyard in 2015. The vines are planted on clay and loam soils with high acidity and iron content. Distilling is done in an alembic continuous still that is more than 50 years old, and the freshly distilled eau-de-vie is transferred to new French oak barrels for aging. After several years the spirit is moved to older barrels for the rest, and majority, of its aging."

"Bottled in 2019, this is fine Armagnac which has deep and complex palate of praline, plums and raisins and finishing with vanilla notes and a long, sweet finish reminiscent of fine old muscat liqueur."
