Taste the deliciousness of Folle Blanche grape that survived the vineyard Armageddon.

In '95, Jean-Philippe Brunello co-founded Artez, a family business rooted in a fertile 12-hectare plot in the Western Bas Armagnac region. While the distillery had been concocting Eaux De Vie for decades, it was Jean-Philippe's early exposure to his grandfather's vino wizardry in Ognoas that ignited his fervor for Armagnac. Artez is renowned for producing mostly single varietals of Armagnacs, a seriously tricky specialty that only the most skilled distillers and blenders can nail.

This Folle Blanche Napoléon Bas Armagnac is crafted from the 100% Folle Blanche grape. Why is that so impressive? Well, let us give you a little background: It was once a reigning monarch in the vineyards of Armagnac, France, until the malicious phylloxera plague razed the vineyard in 1862. Today, this grape variety reigns over a mere 5% of the Armagnac vineyard, rendering Artez Armagnac Folle Blanche a gem of unrivaled scarcity. This single-distilled Napoleon has been aging gracefully for over a decade in Monlezun oak barrels, yielding a breathtaking bouquet of floral aromatics, white peach blossoms, dried apricots, and zesty orange peel flavors.
