Chateau de Millet Armagnac 1978

Armagnac, France

This splendid vineyard of 53 hectares is nestled in the heart of Gascony. Located in the Bas-Armagnac, Chateau de Millet has always been producing high quality wines , thanks to the exceptional grape varieties, to the reasoned work on the vines and a constant evolution of methods and technical equipments.

– all the Armagnac's are vintage apart from their excellent house style 5 Year Old. The Dèche family has produced its wines for five generations with Francis and his daughter, Laurence, now leading the domaine forward, producing a range of vintage Bas-Armagnac, as well as Floc de Gascogne.

The Armagnacs are produced from the Baco grape variety and distilled with the authentic Armagnac still, before aging in 400 liters oak casks for many years.
