Darroze is new Armagnac president

18 July, 2016

The Bureau National Interprofessionnel de l’Armagnac, the generic body representing Armagnac producers, has announced Marc Darroze as its new president.

The BNIA changes its president every three years and the choice of candidate alternates between a producer (one that grows the grapes) and negotiant (a trader, who might also be involved in some part of the production process, though does not grow the grapes) each time.

Darroze (pictured) is a negotiant (trader) but also a producer in that he ages Armagnac. He was elected by the BNIA’s general assembly. He succeeds Corinne Lacoste-Bayens, a producer who had been president since 2013.

The BNIA’s strategic plan embodies a shared vision:

•         Consolidate the industry around the notion of strong commitment, creation and sharing of the added value;

• Cultivating technical expertise and creativity;

• Asserting its position as the premium craft spirit of reference in the world.
