The use of techniques such as topping-up, running-off, barrel disinfection and fining greatly improves the quality of Mouton d’Armailhacq, to the extent that its wines sell for twice as much as neighbouring wines, even though the latter are more highly reputed. The “first wine”, the only one authorised to bear the growth’s name, is distinguished from the “second wine”, less rich and sold for consumption in local taverns.
