This wonderfully old Armagnac (it’s an amazing 52-years-old!) was distilled in 1968 and matured for more than half a century before being bottled on 22 April 2020. It’s produced by Château de Pomès Pébérère, a domain in Ténarèze, one of the three Armagnac plantation areas (terroirs) in the southwest of France. Armagnac is the oldest wine distillate made in France. It was made since 1200 – that’s 200 years earlier than brandy! The Château de Pomès Pébérère domain was built in the 15th century, and came into the possession of the current owners, the Faget family, in 1820. An Alembic still was used, as is customary for Armagnac.
