Darroze Armagnac started in the family restaurant in the 1950's where you could pour yourself an Armagnac from a selected barrel sitting in the corner... From gastronomic beginnings, in love with their region, the family grew a passion for Armagnac. Today Marc Darroze, President of the Armagnac official agency, works with many farmers and small vineyards in the region. Darroze unique collection showcase all the different styles you can find in Armagnac, in a stunning range of vintages, always mentioning the particular estate of production. This 1980 vintage from Rimaillo estate was sourced from the farm of Madame Larrieu in the village of Nogaro. 100% ugni blanc grapes. EYE: nice golden and brilliant colour. NOSE: fruit notes of quince, orange and apricot are dominant. With air (10 minutes, worth the wait), the Armagnac reveals fines spiced flavours and some very delicate oaky fragrances. PALATE: we feel fruits and spices again. The tannins are silky and fine. Great finish. Actually delicious with a cigar!

Monthly Special

Darroze Armagnac

The story begins around a table with Jean Darroze at his restaurant in Villeneuve-de-Marsan. With a deep love for his native Southwest and its ancient traditions, this iconic cook of Landes gastronomy introduces his son Francis to the culinary arts, fine wines, and the exquisite eaux-de-vie of Gascony.

From the late 1960s, Francis Darroze intensifies his visits to the lands of Bas Armagnac, selecting, maturing, and bottling his most treasured discoveries. Maison Armagnac Darroze is born, and the adventure begins.

The Vineyard

Today, around thirty estates contribute to this extraordinary collection, perfecting its aging process in cellars in both Roquefort and Labastide d’Armagnac.

Rare and historical pieces, as well as eaux-de-vie freshly distilled by small producers or renowned itinerant distillers, have been selected and overseen for over 20 years by Marc Darroze. He shares the same values and passion as his grandfather Jean and his father Francis.

Local Craftsmanship

Guided by his visionary instinct, Francis Darroze soon realised that Armagnac could be crafted much like wine: with a unique domain, no blending, and in small, perfectly traceable batches. He shared this vision and dedication with his son Marc, who now leads Armagnacs Darroze. Today, they offer a wide variety of rare Armagnacs that highlight the work of local craftsmen.
