Château de Pellehaut creates Ice age Armagnac

Age de Glace is a new Armagnac specially created to be served with ice. It is a young blend of several vintages that has had a minimum of three years ageing in oak and is the creation of Mathieu Béraut, the oenologist of the two brothers that run the Chateau de Pellehaut estate in the Tenarèze Armagnac appellation.

Recently described in a blind tasting as could be confused for a Lowlands malt whisky, it is made from 100% Folle Blanche, the historical grape variety used in Armagnac, that gives great finesse and elegant aromas to the eau-de-vie.

Although designed to be tasted over ice as an aperitif, the Age de Glace is equally at home as a digestive Armagnac on its own or in a cocktail.

Age de Glace is distilled between 53 – 55% abv on a traditional armagnac alambic. After reduction it is bottled at 40% abv and is unfiltered.

The Armagnac is now available in the UK from importer Maison Sichel: with a RRP of approximately £25-£30.
