The week in pictures

Four-star Gascony hotel La Bastide is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the estates’ vineyard — Chateau de Sandemagnan — producing its first Armagnac vintage with a bespoke weekend package for fans of the spirit.

The deal, which includes a one night stay, breakfast, a and a three course dinner, will also see guests taken through the vineyard’s rich history by resident oenologist Max Dumolié.

On top of this, guests will also receive a bottle of Armagnac Hors d’Age – Assemblage de Millesimes 1991-1999.

Armagnac is the oldest spirit to be distilled in France and a secret favourite amongst chefs.  There are three appellations within the region: Armagnac-Tenareze, Haut Armagnac and Chateau de Sandemagnan lays within the Bas Armagnac appellation, where over 50% of the spirit is produced.

The vineyard covers 52 hectares, 32 of which are dedicated to the spirit, and has its own alembic still with all maturation and bottling undertaken on site.
