Legrand 2001 will always be a welcome gift for any occasion, will allow you to join the traditions of the legendary land.

The birthplace of Armagnac is the Gascony region - the southern province of France. Armagnacs are mentioned in the 18th century, when it was used as a medicine, at the same time the concept of cru for alcohols appeared and the recognition of Bas-Armagnac - as the most prestigious region where the best alcohols were produced, the local product turned out to be softer with a slight scent of violets or cinnamon. The alcohols from the grapes of this region are extraordinarily powerful, with a long taste, and extraordinarily aromatic. Armagnac is dominated by grape varieties: Ugni Blanc (up to 75% of the area), as well as Colombard, Folle Blanche and Baco 22A - the only hybrid used to make spirits.

Armagnac "Baron Gaston Legrand" is made by the cognac house Lheraud , whose history dates back to 1680, from the owner Alexander Lero, whose vineyards were located in Petit Champagne, near the city of Cognac. In 1970, Guy Leroy took over. He is engaged in the production and sale of cognac under his own name "Cognac Guy Lheraud". The estate currently has 182 acres of land, which is approximately 80 hectares, on which the grapes of the Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard varieties grow. The Lero Cognac House produces high quality cognacs, as well as Pino de Charantes.

As for the Armagnac "Baron Gaston Legrand", the House of Lero acquired the estate, left without heirs, due to the presence of a rich stock of vintage armagnacs in order to replenish the range of products. In the second half of the 19th century, the Lero family acquired a classic Armagnac distillation apparatus and received permission to produce grape spirit. Armagnac is distilled only once and aged in several oak barrels - in new ones so that the drink absorbs the energetic aromas of fresh wood, and then older ones - for a slow and harmonious ripening, and this is also done in order to remove excess tannins. Black oak for Armagnac is more suitable than oak from Tronse or Limousin. The barrels, which range in volume from 700 to 1200 liters, are stored on earthen floors in cellars built with local stone. The aging, evaporation and blending processes are the same as those of cognac, but, as a rule, Armagnac is able to age no more than 40 years. After this period, they are bottled in glass vats or bottles, where the aging process stops and Armagnac retains all its best properties. Very often the concept of millesim (one year of distillation) is applicable for Armagnac. Baron Gaston Legrand Millesime Armagnacs are the hallmark of the House of Lero - although there are options in its range and traditional categories: VS, VSOP and XO. In Armagnac, as a product, variability is valued: drinks from different years of production of the same Houses may have different tastes and aromas.

A good Armagnac exhibits an interesting variety of aromas. The most typical aromas of Armagnac are seven: hazelnut, peach, violet, linden, vanilla, prune and pepper. The Baron Gaston Legrand Millesime Armagnacs from 1900 to 1995 are distinguished by their aromas and taste in different vintages. Young vintages are dominated by notes of peach, violet, mint, and there is always an aroma of minerals and moist earth in the background. In more seasoned Armagnacs millesimes, the palette changes, berry and woody tones appear, combined with aromas of dried fruits.
