After a dry winter, a cold and rainy spring slows the evolution of the vine. Summer settling in early June is sunny and very hot with peaks of heat wave at 38-40 ° C, allowing a perfect ripening of the bunches, until the harvest which took place at the end of September and October, giving wines of high quality, complex and with perfect levels of acidity. A great vintage as in other appellations.

“A breathtakingly good Armagnac! On the nose this has heady molasses richness suggesting a powerful spirit to follow. Which it is with extraordinary intensity on the palate…yet despite its power there is a teasing delicacy, beautifully wrought jewels of flavours, so deep, so complex, and what a finish! This is a heroic Armagnac, and an Armagnac for heroes!” (IWSC 2018)
