Bas-Armagnac Domanine Langreau 1983-1986-1989
These three vintages are a little treasure sought and found in a magnificent botanical garden in the heart of Gascony. For each vintage only 52 bottles were imported into Italy and the now ceased production of the Faget lords make these bottles a rarity. Each vintage has its own organoleptic personality and all of them are a magnificent journey for the palate and a rediscovering of lost time and the art of artisanal distillation.

Nicole and Aimé Faget were farmers and winegrowers. They cultivated corn and the vines for the instillation of Armagnac until their retirement in 1995. Then they continued to be interested in the plant world but in a different way: little by little, they created, on their estate, in Bourrouillan, a magnificent botanical garden of 1.5 hectares on several levels.
Small signs name the plants in Latin and French. “Perfect harmony, for me, would be to have a stream meandering through the garden,” dreams Aimé Faget. This Armagnac is obtained from wine (baco 22 A, colombard, ugni blanc) distilled with a continuous distillation alembic typical of Gascony.
Gold medal at the General Agricultural Competition in 2008. Their Armagnac is aged in a stone cellar shaded by a 300-year-old oak. Cuspid managed to import 106 bottles of the best vintages of Messrs Faget’s production 1983, 1986, 1989. The Fagets no longer distill and this Armagnac is undoubtedly an absolute precious rarity.
