CHÂTEAU DE CASSAIGNE
CASSAIGNE , Gers
At the heart of the Great Site « Armagnac, Abbey and Cities », discover a site that should not be missed in Gascony: the Castle of Cassaigne.
Ideal stop in the heart of Gascony, 6 km away from Condom (3,7 mi.), 5 km from the Abbey of Flaran (3,1 mi.) and 35 minutes away from Auch, the castle of Cassaigne is an extraordinary heritage site
Cassaigne’s vineyard is closely linked to its prestigious 15th-century castle, historical property of the bishops of Condom. Surrounded by more than 30 ha (74 ac) of grapevines, the Armagnac production made this home famous so it has now reached the high spheres of the Côtes de Gascogne wines.
Tour freely the Castle exhibition telling the history and the techniques used for the production of Armagnac. The old weapon room whose walls are 2 meters wide (3 ft 3) was converted into one of the Armagnac aging cellars. You can see a film about grapevines and test your sense of smell with a “scent organ”. The old 16th-century kitchen shows a surprising vault, built like a baker’s oven. The walk ends with a tasting of the estate production, also for sale in the castle shop. Price: 2,50 € per person.
Guided tour « Wine and Armagnac » at the castle of Cassaigne: we shall start our visit telling the castle history before going on a tour of our vineyard in order to discover the soils and local grape variety such as Manseng Noir, Colombard, Ugni Blanc, Baco … We will then head towards the castle grounds and the Armagnac aging cellar for an explanation on the principle behind distillation.
