Armagnac Marcel Trépout

When Heads-of-State visit France and are presented with a gift from the French Government, it is always Armagnac Marcel Trépout. Known throughout France as L'Armagnac des gourmets ("the Gourmet's Armagnac"), Armagnac Trépout is produced at the Château Notre-Dame in the heart of the Gascogne. The stocks of Trépout date back to the 1830's.

Armagnac is France's first brandy. It has concentrated complex aromas and tremendous length. It is not at all like Cognac. The grapes, soil conditions, climate, distillation, and aging techniques are completely different. To the true connoisseur, it is the world's top brandy.

Armagnac is to be savoured - not just the taste but the aromas. Once an ounce is poured into a brandy snifter it should be slowly warmed by swirling in the hand. Only after ten minutes, when the Armagnac is warmed to body temperature, should the aromas and taste be appreciated.
