1837: The Beginning
Founded in 1837, the Larressingle Armagnac is a family-run business located in the heart of south-west France, nestled among hills and valleys. Over the years, several generations of cellar masters have jealously raised this subtle marriage of the Armagnac-Ténarèze and Bas-Armagnac terroir to build the reputation of our Armagnac. Even today, our armagnacs age in the shade of the centenary barrels for the pleasure of your taste buds.
The two most significant subregions of Armagnac, in which the fruit for Larressingle Armagnac is grown, are Bas Armagnac and Ténarèze. After harvest, a base wine is made which is then distilled in a small, fire-driven still called an alembic. A portion of the spirit may be double-distilled to promote a light, smooth texture in the final blend. Individual spirits are then aged in the traditional oak casks called pièces armagnacaises. After aging, Armagnacs are blended across spirit age and origin as well as distillation type. This blending process, called the coup, defines Larressingle’s unique and highly regarded style.
