Dark amber with deep golden highlights. Round, creamy notes emits aromas of plum, vanilla, toffee, and spice. Great balance on the soft palate, with additional notes of walnut, pepper and a touch of smoke. The flavors linger on the palate for over a minute. Importer Notes
Ravignan has tremendous respect within the Armagnac region. The distillation at a low degree insures lots of fruit, new oak gives wonderful structure, and long aging insures a natural concentration of flavors. A large array of subtle flavors always weave their way in and out of the glass. The Ravignan Armagnacs normally receive top marks in important French magazines like Gault-
Castles have graced the property of what is now the Château de Ravignan since the 12th century. The name "Ravignan" itself comes from the deep ravines surrounding the property that once served as a natural defense.
The château was later occupied by feudal barons and partially destroyed during the religious wars of the 16th century. In the mid-17th century, a Louis XIII manor was built on the property.
Vineyards were planted in 1732. Around the same time, the property was sold to Jean La Croix, who later took the name Ravignan. Importer Notes
