Le Bas Armagnac
Le Bas-Armagnac:- is one of the three plantation areas in the Armagnac area where grapes for the distillation of the Armagnac eau-de-vie can be cultivated. It extends over the Landes and Gers departments and represents 57% of the vineyards. It lies in the west, beside Armagnac-Ténarèze, an undulating area; the grapes grow in acidic, argillaceous and stony ground. The temperate oceanic climate and undulating valleys of Bas Armagnac ensure that the wines used in its brandies are high in acidity and low in alcohol.
