Château de Pellehaut launches 'taster' gift

With such a diversity of taste in its wide range of Armagnacs, the family run Château de Pellehaut, situated in the Armagnac Tenarèze appellation zone, has just launched a 'tasting' case of six of its specially selected Armagnacs.

For more than three centuries, the Béraut family has owned the 530 hectare farm and now it is brothers Martin and Mathieu Béraut who run the estate together which includes 250 hectares of vines for the Pellehaut wine and Armagnac, whilst the remaining land is used to raise local Blonde d'Aquitaine cattle and cereals. The land is managed in a traditional way with respect for nature where the use of chemicals is limited and the manure from the cattle is used to fertilise the vineyards.

Six tubes each containing 6cl are the perfect gift for those wanting to discover Armagnac and explore the great diversity that this noble spirit can offer.
