DE MONTAL ARMAGNAC VINTAGE SHOWCASE | 1970, 1980, 1990
Though often compared to its famous neighbor, Armagnac has been experiencing a well-deserved surge in prestige and we can’t get enough of it. Whereas blending is commonplace for many whiskies and Cognacs, the most significant and memorable Armagnacs showcase a single vintage and moment in time—capturing and bottling terroir like the finest wines. We’re thrilled to have partnered today with the legendary Armagnac de Montal to offer a rare lineup of 1970, 1980, and 1990 vintage expressions, packaged in a gift-worthy Vintage Showcase set of three 200ml-sized bottles. This gift set boasts nearly 50 years of history at an unbelievable Concierge price of $134.97.
All sourced from Bas-Armagnac, each de Montal vintage is impressively distinct. Truly, you’d be hard pressed to find another spirit category that vividly expresses its terroir and maintains finesse after so many decades in oak. The 1970 is the most evolved, with a delicate but powerful bouquet of dried fruit and floral orange blossom. The 1980 has an incredible spicy character that unfolds magnificently with each sip. The 1990 showcases luscious oaky character up front, and sings notes of vanilla, clove, and toast.
Olivier de Montal has been marketing his line of boutique Armagnacs in the U.S. since the 1970s and has built a loyal following over the years. De Montal, ever the perfectionist, controls the entire production process from grape to barrel to bottle. While many producers use three main grape varietals, the de Montal house champions four: Baco, Folle Blanche, Colombard, and Ugni Blanc are all sourced from estate-owned vineyards within the esteemed Bas-Armagnac region, widely recognized as the source of the most distinguished Armagnacs. After distillation by de Montal’s three copper stills, charmingly named Athos, Portos, and Aramis, the eaux-de-vie are transferred to large oak barrels from Gascony, Allier, and the Vosges to complete their long maturation.
The late Princess Diana once gifted her hairdresser a bottle of 1904 de Montal, which now has a pretty price tag of nearly $35,000 and speaks to the prestigious reputation of de Montal’s Armagnac. Rest assured today’s offer won’t set you back nearly as much! Whether you’re a longtime or new de Montal fan, this is an unbeatable opportunity to experience three captivating Armagnac vintages encompassing nearly 50 years of history. We’re offering this impressive de Montal Armagnac Vintage Showcase at a special Concierge price of $134.97 for one week only, or until sold out. Don’t delay in securing your order!
