A blend of several vintages of which the youngest is 15 years old, aged in 400L oak barrels, some from the property, some from the Limousin forest. The 15 years has a golden yellow colour and lightly toasted oak on the nose and on the palate. It's a little nervous at first, which disappears rapidly and lets you discover the subtlety of the lightly toasted oak.
Covering some 530 hectares, Chteau de Pellehaut is one of the biggest estates in the whole of the Gers. 250 hectares are made up of vines, whilst the remaining land is used to raise Blonde d'Aquitaine cattle and for growing cereals.
It is a true farming estate run in a traditional way; respect for ancestral methods and for natural balance tempered by a scientific rigour and a constant search for quality through innovation.
The Tnarze, with its calcareous clay soils, produces eaux-devie with more structure and power. It is because of this variety and complexity of the soils that the wines of this vineyard are a lot more fruity and rich. It is also because of the geographic proximity to Bas-Armagnac, the vinification process and the choice of distillation and maturation methods. The eaux-de-vie of Chteau Pellehaut are fine, soft and complex. Proof of
this lies with the numerous medals and commendations in the French and International press
