Le Haut Armagnac
Le Haut-Armagnac:- lies to the south and east of Bas-Armagnac and Armagnac-Ténarèze, which are the other two armagnac producing areas, and is much the largest of the three. Viticulture was developed here in the 19th century to meet a the high market demand. Today the original vineyards still exist but only represent a small amount of the production. Haut-Armagnac includes the towns of Marciac and Lectoure and the capital of Gers, the city of Auch. The vineyards are scattered like islands over the chalky clay hills.
