In 1955, Pierre de Montesquiou, a direct descendant of the famous musketeer d’Artagnan, decided to use his passion: armagnac, camaraderies and his Gascon homeland in the south west of France by creating his own armagnac house - Marquis de Montesquiou.
- The Marquis de Montesquiou armagnacs are made of the finest terroirs.
- Mobile stills are used for the distillation process. The hosue starts distilling in the autumn each year just after the grape harvest when the wine is still fresh.
- each armagnac is “raised” like a child using local oak. The maturation process is unique, two barrel types are used. A first maturation in new barrels from 6 months to 1 year and another one in old barrels to find the “exquisite equilibrium”.
Blend of eaux-de-vie having at least 5 years of maturation, forming a unique and robustly balanced Armagnac. The maturity resulting from an optimal wood management insured in toasted barrels allows the oak to release its full tannins in the selected ageing eaux-de-vie.
