More Compelling Than Cognac!
A Rare Opportunity to Explore With The Distiller
$49 or Complimentary with Dinner
Domaine de Papolle was established in Gascony in the 17th century and is spread over 135 hectares, including 55 hectares of vineyards. Gascony is best known as the home of Foie Gras, d'Artagnon and Armagnac. The Romans introduced the vine, the Arabs the alembic still, and the Celts the wooden cask. These were brought together in to make brandy in Gascony as early as the 12th century. While it's northern cousin Cognac gets all the glory, I have always found Armagnac more compelling. It's the home of many small producers of great integrity rather than large corporations. Would you like to meet one such producer?
