In Armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, Baron do 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 fashioned….
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 that is Armagnac….
The legend adds that, with time, Baron de Sigognac came to trust only his palate for telling the age of an Armagnac. The clocks were left unwound.
Baron de Sigognac himself had become the memory of his Armagnacs.
