Chateau Du Briat Hors D Age Armagnac
The Chateau de Briat has a long and impressive history. Built in 1540, it first served as the hunting manor for Queen Jeanne d'Albret. Her son, Henri de Navarre, later Henri IV, King of France, often stayed in the castle but in 1587 gave it to one of his fellow officers as a reward for saving his life in battle.After changing ownership several times, the domaine was taken over by Baron Raoul de Pichon-Longueville in 1864. This 12-year old is made of 75% bacco, 15% folle blanche and 10% colombard. Amber colored with attractive viscosity, its supple, elegant texture holds notes of licorice, chocolate, toffee and oak.
