Armagnac, Tempranillo

Although Armagnac is the oldest brandy distilled in France it has taken a back row seat to its more famous cousin Cognac. Not to be confused with Cognac (to the North of Bordeaux,) Armagnac lies between the Adour and Garonne rivers in the foothills of the Pyrenees.

Armagnac was never produced in the same vast quantities that Cognac has been produced and as such, was and continues to be produced by mainly smaller, family-owned producers rather than the ‘big players’ in Cognac.

There are ten different grape varieties used in the production of Armagnac, but four grape varieties in particular provide the backbone for the majority of Armagnacs. Always blended, the four main grape varieties are Baco 22A, Colombard, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc.

United Cellars import a wide range of Armagnacs from key producers such as Delord, Castarede, Comte de Lamaestre, Maison Gélas and many more!
Tempranillo is a native Spanish grape varietal which is primarily used in the production of Rioja. Grown throughout the north of Spain, Tempranillo is an early ripening grape. High altitudes and cool climates help the keep the grapes acidity and make for more elegant wines with red fruit profiles.

When young, plums and cherries shine through in Tempranillo wines. With age and oak, the fruit becomes more subdued. Notes of leather and tobacco leaves are more pronounced in more mature Tempranillo wines.
