The Guasch family, owners of Baron de Sigognac, have been based in Gascony since the 12th Century. Uniquely in the region, all of their production is distilled into Armagnac, and not wine. Run by father and son team Jean-Claude and Thomas who look after the viticulture, vinification and distillation. Each years' production is aged independently and then blended with other armagnac upon bottling under the supervision of Jean-Claude.
This has very good balance in the mouth, endowed with a suave vanilla taste with notes of crystallised fruits that is very rare in a VSOP.
