L’Encantada (adjective) : In Gascon, means the enchantress or the enchanter. Which charms, delights the heart, the mind; bewitching
“For us, it refers both to the Grail quest, which symbolizes the impossible quest for perfection that drives us to constantly improve, and to a more magical aspect.”
Gascony, land of flavors, know-how and authenticity, gave birth to L’Encantada. We are négociants – éleveurs, offering rare and exceptional armagnacs bottled in our Vic-Fezensac winery.
L’Encantada works in partnership with small producers located in different terroirs.
We select specific barrels which are then matured in our cellars to sublimate and continue this work of passion.
Armagnac is produced from grapes from the Gascony region of France. The grape varieties frequently used are Ugni blanc, Baco, Colombard and Folle Blanche.
The aged wine is distilled in an Armagnac still to produce pure alcohol, called eau-de-vie. This brandy is then put in barrels for aging.
The armagnac is then patiently aged in oak barrels for several years. This period is called the maturation and precedes the bottling.
The cellar master then chooses the right moment to bottle the Armagnac and offer it for tasting.
Bas-Armagnac is renowned for its light, fruity, rapidly aging eaux-de-vie.
Armagnac-Ténarèze is known to give fuller-bodied eaux-de-vie, reaching their fullness with age.
Haut-Armagnac has a more chalky terroir, giving powerful, full-bodied eaux de vie.
