Based largely in the Gers department and somewhat towards the west in the Landes area, Bas-Armagnac is probably the most famous of the region’s zones. It consists of 8,000 hectares of which 3,500 are used to produce Armagnac. As the name suggests, it has a lower altitude than its neighboring zones at between 60 to 120 meters above sea level. Most of its soil is referred to as “sables fauves”, which refers to its composition of rusty-colored sand. Meanwhile, there is a strong presence of “boulbène” soil, which is rich in clay and silicates. Thanks to these unique characteristics, the Bas-Armagnac region has been able to resist multiple phylloxera outbreaks.

Jacques de Chastenet de Puysegur was the first to introduce Armagnac to King Louis XIII of France.
