Grape Variety: Brandy

Brandy is the name used for a wide range of potable spirits, made mostly from grape wines but sometimes also from other fruits (for fruit brandies see Eaux-de-Vie). The name brandy is a shortened form of brandywine, which an anglicized form of Dutch brandewijn, which means 'burnt wine'.

This is precisely what brandy is. To make brandy, wine is heated in a still until it separates into its components, which evaporate at various points on the temperature scale. The more volatile the component, the lower the temperature at which it evaporates, leaving behind  the impurities and heavier compounds. This is the process used to turn wine into brandy.

Region Hierarchy
  • Bas Armagnac

    Bas Armagnac lies on the western side of the Armagnac region of France and is famed for producing some of the best examples of this distinctively styled brandy. (Copyright material, Wine-Searcher.)

    The local soil is typically acidic, silica-rich, sandy clay and is well suited to the cultivation of the Armagnac grape varieties – in particular, Baco Blanc and Ugni Blanc.

    The temperate, oceanic climate and undulating valleys of Bas Armanganc ensure that the wines used in its brandies are high in acidity and low in alcohol. This, in turn, produces brandies that are stylistically delicate, complex and aromatic.
