Château Garreau (Domaine de Gayrosse) is situated in the Bas Armagnac region in the south of France, roughly between Bordeaux and Toulouse ― the region known as "The Golden Triangle of Armagnac". Two farms are part of the 82-hectare estate: the Gayrosse and Brameloup farms with some of the buildings dating back to the 17th century. Most of the buildings were erected in the 19th century. There's a museum on the premises (Ecomusée de l'Armagnac) that accepts visitors year-round and features a permanent exhibition of bottles as well as temporary exhibitions. It is there that you can learn about the history and heritage of Armagnac and the local terroir.

The Garreau family took over the estate in 1919 and is now in its 3rd and 4th generations, with Carole Garreau taking over the reins most recently. She continues in the footsteps of her great-grandfather, fusing modernity and tradition while adopting sustainable practices. They grow Baco, Ugni Blanc, and Folle Blanche grape varietals in their vineyards on the sandy loam soil of the region, nestled between woods and ponds. Each of these varietals is distilled separately before they are meticulously blended and matured in oak casks in their underground cellar that is more than a century old and features unique temperature and humidity levels that are perfect for maturing Armagnac.

Château Garreau Millesime 2001 Grand Bas Armagnac is part of their Sensation range of vintages that contains expressions that are more than 10 years old. It was distilled from Baco grapes and aged in oak barrels in their cellars before being bottled at 82 proof. The brandy has rich notes of chocolate, demerara sugar, vanilla, plum, and roasted chestnuts.
