Today, thanks to this unique know-how, passed down over many generations, our company is above all, renowned as much for the excellence of its production as well as for its exceptional collection of vintage eaux-de-vie Armagnacs, which are lovingly and patiently aged over long years; the oldest of which dates to 1893…
Bordeneuve Châteaux & Collections is a family-owned and run company specialising in the production and ageing of fine and rare eaux-de-vie, principally from the 'Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée'.
With its Estate and vineyards being ideally located on tawny-sandy soils and by implementing a policy of clean and integrated viticulture, our Domain is able to obtain grape juice of the very highest quality.
Gilles Bartholomo is a craftsman with hands of gold. He is the last of the master coopers in the region,
located in Frêche, in the Landes. He constructs his barrels entirely by hand from Gascon black oak,
according to ancestral know-how. These are the same barrels used to age our Armagnacs as well as
our wines La Croix Reserve and Victoire. The quality of these pieces is essential in producing an exceptional Armagnac.
Our Aging Cellar
It is in the old cellars (1840) that refinement of the eaux-de-vie gets underway. Thick walls and a beaten earth floor provide the perfect conditions for the ageing process of our eaux-de-vie, which takes place in new French oak barrels.
These high-spec casks are meticulously chosen for the quality of their wood and the exactitude of the toasting, coming only from the most renowned French coopers.
