Expertise throughout the centuries

The distillation of the spirit- is carried out during the winter following the harvest.

Most of the armagnac is obtained from the mobile alambic still, whose colourless liquid can reach an alcoholic degree ranging from 52% to 72%. Distillation is an essential time in the life of an armagnac.
It is then placed in 400-litre oak barrels, the armagnac ages , becoming golden to mahogany-coloured and loses its alcoholic strength through evaporation which is called the Angel’s share.
It is then blended with other Armagnacs or kept as a vintage.

At the L’Encantada cellar, you can find both unique products however, the vintages remain privileged, in order to taste the personality of a domaine, and its independence, which represents the unique real expression identity of the terroir

What are the differences between Armagnac and Cognac?

Armagnac and Cognac differ in several ways: the territories, the distillation method and the grape varieties used.

Cognac is distilled twice while Armagnac is distilled only once. The main grape variety used in Cognac is Ugni Blanc. While for Armagnac we can find Colombard, Ugni Blanc, Baco or Folle Blanche.

And finally, the two appellations are separated by several hundred kilometers which explains the diversity of the soils.
