In the heart of the Bas Armagnac vineyard (Southwest France), the origin of Domaine de Papolle goes back to the 17th century with its Bas Armagnac production, which continues today. Additionally, today our white wines also represent an important part of our production. The contrasts, both technical and commercial, between the creations of these two products reveals the spirit of mind Papolle: authentic & innovative.
Domaine de Papolle was established in the 17th century and is spread over 135 hectares, including 55 hectares of vineyards. Surrounded by forest and lakes, Domaine de Papolle is a haven of peace, a unique place where nature runs wildly free.
Besides our production of the ancestral and more famous “Eau-de-vie des Rois” that is Armagnac, our vineyards also produce the fruit for our unique wines. The wines are mostly white and are produced from local grapes such as Colombard, Ugni Blanc, Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng, as well as more traditional varieties like Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Merlot and Syrah are used to make the red and rosé.
These grapes varieties, both independently or blended, offer fresh wines with powerful and complex aromas. The wines are well balanced, festive, and easy to drink. They will make great appetizers or will beautifully accompany seafood, white meats, or for a different perspective, cheeses.
