Haut Armagnac
Haut Armagnac: the finest soils in Gascony

Zacharie Baqué, the consummate historian of Gascony, held that, of all the eaux de vie made in Armagnac, those from Haut Armagnac had "the finest bouquet". He went on to add: "while those in the know recognize that fact, traders in a hurry to stock up and sell choose Armagnacs from other areas, which are in greater abundance". The vineyards of the AOC Haut Armagnac are unique. Accounting for less than two per cent of total Armagnac production, Haut Armagnac is a treasure, considered to be the drink of the true connoisseur and, these days, is exceedingly difficult to find.
