Since 1890, the Dèche family has been shared a passion for the vines. In 1975, Francis Dèche, 4th génération, bought the Blaise estate, adjacent to the Millet family vineyard with the ambition to produce a famous Armagnac. This plot , the highest of this estate, benefits a large slope facing south on moor soils . Bordered by groves, and overgrown by gorse, ferns, broom and heather, Francis Dèche had the intuition that this clay-siliceous soil , in places mixed with ferruginous elements, the "sables fauves", would be an excellent terroir for the production of Armagnac. Year after year, the vines of Baco and Ugni Blanc are planted, the Blaise vineyard is born. It produces a light, acidulous white wine, with a well pronounced aromatic character. At the end of its fermentation, the wine is distilled in a traditional single-distillation, giving Armagnacs with remarkable ageing potential. Today , His daughter Laurence carries on his work to offer the finest Blaise Armagnacs in a warm atmosphere giving priority to sharing and exchange between generations.
The vineyard of Blaise Armagnac is situated outside of the town of Eauze, the Armagnac's Capital, in the heart of South West. The specific famous terroir alternates between clay limestone and the sandy soils known as 'sables fauve' . The vines produce fruity and delicate spirits.
All Armagnacs are elaborated by distillation of white wines come from vines of Baco and ugni blanc grapes. Ageing in oak barrel for several years. Bottling as needed.
