Another exceptional price/age ratio for a wood-aged spirit can be found in this majestic 40-year-old Bas Armagnac (the age statement here refers to the youngest Armagnac in the blend). The diversity in crus, vintages, grape varieties and styles has allowed Marc Darroze to work on his "Les Grands Assemblages" (The Great Blends), chosen for their complementary characteristics, the selected Armagnacs in each bottling are of different ages. After over four decades in 400-litre barrels, expect this to have evolved layers of sweet spices, candied fruits, rancio and super soft, round tannins.

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.
