The Blanche d’Armagnac is an Armagnac that is bottled without having been aged in oak barrels. Like Armagnac, it comes from the distillation of a dry white wine from the Gascony region. Once it has left the still, the pure and transparent eau de vie, that we call “blanche” or “white”, is rich with fruity and floral aromas. After three months rest in stainless steel tanks - it can be bottled.
In 2005 the Blanche d’Armagnac obtained the AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) designation by the INAO (the French public entity in charge of awarding classifications of quality and origin to agricultural products). It is the youngest of the French AOCs in the spirits category.
