Château de Briat Mauvezin d'Armagnac, Les Landes, France
Built in 1540, Chateau de Briat first served as the hunting manor for Queen Jeanne d'Albret. Her son, Henri de Navarre, later Henri IV, King of France, often stayed in the castle. Seven hectares of vines are divided between Bacco, Folle Blanche and Colombard. Topping up of the barrels is not practiced; at Briat, they prefer to let the levels fall to promote air contact. This creates a spirit that is less aggressive than most. The armagnacs of Briat embody what one can find in a glass of Gascon spirit - intense nose, a rich palate feel and excellent length.
