Bas Armagnac VS Folle Blanche, Artez

£33.99

Artez is located in the western part of Bas-Armagnac, also known as Premier Cru. Its hillside vineyards are around 40 years old, growing Baco, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche vines on iron-rich sandy soils (sables fauves). These grape varieties are harvested, vinified, distilled in the property’s still and then aged separately in oak barrels. Artez is unique in producing single-grape Bas Armagnacs, which requires special skills from the distiller. Each vintage is different because of annual variations in sunshine and rainfall but Artez say their armagnacs are notable for their smoothness and aromatic intensity.
The Folle Blanche is the best known, being the historic and traditional grape for Armagnac but it’s also quite rare now! It produces fine and floral eaux de vie with great elegance. “…a restrained vanilla aroma, leading into lip-smacking brown sugar, maple and cocoa powder” – ‘Best Buy’ Wine Enthusiast, 2021.

Artez

Situated in Arthez in the Les Landes region, Artez have been producing spirits since 1995, placing an emphasis on tradition and quality. In February 2002, Artez met Absinthe producer Jean-Michel Berneau, who bought the company 2 months later. They’re not just distillers; on 12 hectares of land they grow the grapes and cultivate the other plants that are the ingredients for their entire range. In a further key step, their land was certified organic in 2012. This agricultural aspect of the business allows them to control every link in the production chain; from their plant to your glass. This attention to detail sets them apart from traditional distilleries; at Artez, production is small and artisanal.
