Estate launches new generation of Armagnac called UBY Oak
For three generations, the Domain UBY estate in Southwestern France has been committed to a human, environmental and sustainable approach.
Exciting developments for Vinexpo Bordeaux 2019 include the launch of a new generation of Armagnac called UBY Oak, whose characteristics include vinification without sulphites, triple cask maturation and rich amber colour.
The vineyard is located in the Gers region between Toulouse and Bordeaux. The wine is made naturally, without the addition of sulphites, and is distilled in Domain UBY’s single heating still. It is during the maturation process in oak barrels that the amazing alchemy between alcohol and wood takes place. As for the estate’s spirits, the best plots of tawny sand in Bas-Armagnac have always been selected to give them the required elegance and fruitiness.
A new winery guaranteeing the safety and development of the estate was built in 2012. It combines mastery and technical expertise, from winemaking, aging and conservation to packaging.
To meet Domain UBY’s growing customer- base’s demands without having to compromise on its quality objectives, the estate has partnered with local winemakers – who bring in their harvest according to a common production specification. Overall, the operation comprises 250 hectares of family owned wines and 320 hectares of winegrower-partners of which 70ha are organic.
