The Bas-Armagnac region, with the best vineyards for Armagnac, houses hilly landscapes alternating with dense woods. The mild and humid climate, together with the sunny autumn, ensures Armagnac de Montal's subtle flavors and aromas. The grape varieties used are Folle Blanche, Ugni-Blanc, Bacco, and Colombard. The wine is distilled immediately after harvesting so that maximum aroma can be retained. Armagnac de Montal still uses a copper still or “large organ” that enables vapors to rise. Aging takes place in white oak barrels in an unusually long aging process giving Armagnac De Montal its golden color and aromas of vanilla, lilac, and especially plum.
