2000 Château de Briat Vintage Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

SKU #1529032

The incredible history of Briat dates back to 1540 when the chateau was established as a hunting manor for Queen Jeanne d'Albret. Her son, Henri de Navarre, later Henri IV, King of France, often stayed in the castle. Eventually the Chateau was taken over by Baron Raoul de Pichon-Longueville in 1864. The Pichon-Longueville family already owned the famous vineyard of the same name in Pauillac. They used the estate as a country escape and always used a portion of the years wine production to distill Armagnac. When the Bordeaux property was sold, the Chateau de Briat was retained by the family and their stewardship continues today. Unlike many producers of Armagnac, Briat keeps yields extremely low and the resulting quality very high. Most vintages are produced with native yeast and the estate does not top up their barrels, preferring instead for the angel's share to disappear and increase air contact. The result is a brandy that is rich, textural, and long in the finish. The aggressive edge that can be found in many Armagnacs has been sanded away by time.
