Baron de Sigognac   Baron de Sigognac Logo

In Armagnac, legend has it that one day a long time ago, Baron de Sigognac took all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. Fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way Armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. On these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. The seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries.

Baron de Sigognac had found the core of the mystery of Armagnac.

The legend adds that, with time, Baron de Sigognac came to trust only his palate in telling the age of an Armagnac. The clocks were left unwound.

Baron Sigognac himself had become the memory of his Armagnacs.
