Baron de Sigognac

Baron de Sigonac

--

Castelnau D'auzan belongs to the region Occitania in the Biscay in the southwest of France. The village lies between the rivers Gélise and Izaute on the edge of extensive forests – 26 km east of the city of Condom. On the hills around the town, there are small settlements surrounded by the vineyards of the Côtes de Biscay. The Atlantic coast is not far away and results in a maritime climate with cool summers and temperate winters. Baron de Sigognac is one of the oldest Armagnac houses. The Guasch family produces the Armagnacs exclusively from wines that originate from its own Château de Bordeneuve, which is about 33 hectares long. The grape varieties Ugni-Blanc and Baco Blanc grow on the sandy soils of the Bas Armagnacs. All Armagnacs are distilled according to an old tradition in a copper “Armagnacais” still originating from the year 1920 and then immediately filled into new oak barrels to age for at least one year. Then the brand is loaded into older barrels to mature there for several years so that the tannins and the excellent soft and powerful flavors can develop slowly.

Basic Principles

--

Baron de Sigognac has always pursued a philosophy with two basic principles: firstly the reliable, traditional methods of production based on the experience of the house. And secondly, the conscious choice of quality at each production step, such as a sustainable culture of vineyards, respect for soil and nature, natural fermentation on the lees, slow distillation and aging in scorched-barrels. "Quality is never an accident. It is the result of the best intentions, sincere efforts, intelligent decisions as well as their skillful realization... "said the Cellarmaster.
