ARMAGNAC
H. DARTIGALONGUE ET FILS

It is in 1838 pennies Louis Philippe, that Pascal DARTIGALONGUE originating in Saint Lannes close to Madiran settled in Nogaro in the Gers and founded its House of trade of Armagnac which is still ours. In 1969, Pierre Dartigalongue installed its distilling with Salles d ' Armagnac. Since, five generations followed one another to ensure and perennialize “the oldest house of the Armagnac”. Producer, distiller and stockbreeder, installed in the area of best believed of this brandy seven times centenary, Dartigalongue is specialized in the very old Bas Armagnacs, products selected and matured according to the ancestral tradition. It offers this single Eau de Vie, declined in credits or vintages, in luxurious and personalized presentations. The house holds in its old original wine storehouses a very important range of old Armagnacs Millésimés, growing old and improving in barrels in oak of the country under the permanent control of the Master of wine storehouse which supervises the evolution and carries out of it various handling of transfer and ventilation. In addition, following meticulous research and tastings, certain vintages are assembled in order to create “special vintages” giving rise to traditional assemblies such V.S.O.P., OUT OF OLD, or to “15 YEARS of OLD”,” 25 YEARS”…, thus to celebrate the 170ème birthday of the creation of the house an exceptional assembly of 70% of 1974 and 30% of 1976, was carried out under the denomination Cuvée Louis-Philippe 42%,70 Cl. (Carafe) (king of the French in 1838). Remarkable Bas-Armagnac cuvée Louis-Philippe (70% of 1974 and 30% of 1976), with the nuances of rancio and spices, very floral, at the same time dry and suave, very persistent with the palate. Also discover this 25 years Bas-Armagnac, assembly of several Armagnac of which young person is at least 25 years old, elegant, with these cocoa and dry fig connotations, slightly fume, of a great consistency in mouth, very scented (nut, prune), of a long final.


MADIRAN
DOMAINE PICHARD

A winegrowing of 12 ha (11 in red and one in white Pacherenc), on a ground thin, silico-argillaceous, very stony, where the southern exposure full to mid-slope makes it possible to obtain wines of very great quality. The vines are planted at the top of a slope, and it is the only winegrowing of madirannais to have the vines of only one holding. The thirty years planted grape varieties of average age are composed of 50% Tannat and 50% Cabernet franc, and for Blanc, primarily of Petit Manseng. One matures wines of tradition here, proposing a range of vintages over 10 years and more, which is very rare. Formidable Madiran red vintage Hugo Bio 2015, intense color, ample and fragrant (violet, blackberry and humus), a well fleshy wine, firm and persistent in mouth, very good evolution. Seductive Madiran red Bio 2016, fleshy, all in aromatic shades, of sustained colour, with complex nose where dominate black cherry and spices, a bold and full-bodied wine. While seductive, the Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh Doux Bio 2015, obviously suave, where intermingle notes of almond, ripe fruit and heather, is superb, a wine that combines intensity and suppleness. The dry white Bio 2017, combines finesse and sweetness, with persistent notes of fresh almond and peach, and we recommend it, for example, on a pie with haddock and endives or avocados with shrimp.
