Armagnac is the oldest French brandy. Already in 1310, the prior of Eauze, Cardinal Vital Dufour, extolled this "burning water", born from the distillation of wines from Gascony soils. The Montesquiou family has been firmly rooted in the soil of Gascony since 1040. It counts among its members the famous Gascony musketeer d'Artagnan, musketeer of the King of France.
