Domaine de Papolle Bas-Armagnac Now Available in Tennessee


October 3rd – Columbus Wine and Spirits is pleased to announce that we have entered into a distribution agreement with Ajax Turner Distributing of Tennessee, a member of The Independent Distributor Network, for Domaine de Papolle Bas-Armagnac effective October 1, 2023. As the national importer for Domaine de Papolle, we believe that Ajax Turner, as a family owned, independent distributor, is the perfect partner for gaining distribution of these fine Armagnacs in the Tennessee market. Initial distribution will include VSOP, Hors D’Age 1987 Vintage aged 31 years in barrel and bottled at cask strength, and 1973 aged 45 years in barrel and bottled at cask strength. 

About Domaine de Papolle, Bas-Armagnac 

The Domaine de Papolle estate can trace their roots back to the 17th century. The estate, now owned by father and son Bernard & Frédéric Piffard, is spread over 135 hectares, 55 of which are under vines. The soil is composed of tawny sand and limestone. These acidic soils help to produce fruity Armagnacs with fantastic aging potential. The Armagnacs are distilled once in a continuous “alembic” still, then aged only in Gascony sourced oak barrels.  
Typically, no more than eight 400Liter barrels are produced each year. Frédéric is the master blender that runs the vineyards and distills the spirit. Their viticultural approach is based on the philosophy that less is more. “We want the grapes to speak for themselves, and we allow this by interfering as little as possible while still maintaining the health of our vines. By doing this we hope to create a natural, pure product that expresses the terroir of our region.” Domaine de PAPOLLE
