About the Chateau:

Chateau de Laubade was built in 1870 and is today the premier Armagnac property, composed of 260 acres of single vineyard. It is located in Sorbets d’Armagnac, in the heart of the noblest area of the appellation: the Bas Armagnac. The Lesgourgues family has been running the estate since 1974. Since 1998, Arnaud and Denis Les-gourgues, as the third generation have been actively involved in the quest of excellence, to make Chateau de Laubade an undisputed reference in the Armagnac category.

Each vintage entirely comes from a single harvest and distillation year. Each vintage clearly expresses its age, which is a specificity of Armagnac and the signature of the house. More than 80 different vintages matured in Chateau de Laubade’s cellars. Currently, the oldest vintage is from 1888. Each Vintage tells a particular story. A story dealing with the ongoing climate changes, with the unique Cellar Masters know-how that has followed one another, along the generations. The casks quality and the cellars temperature participate to the vintage special identity as well. Finally, each vintage is a particular chapter of the estate and draws on its long history, rich know-how and dedication to quality from several generations of men and women’s high involvement. 
Chateau de Laubade only releases its vintages after a minimum of 15 years of ageing in oak casks from Gascony.

"The bouquet displays off-dry aromas of gum, coffee bean, vanilla extract, nut butter, dark caramel and molasses. Palate entry is succulent, candied and sweet; the midpalate owns sweet flavors of dark caramel, honey, old sweet oak and maple. Finishes semisweet, chocolaty and luscious."
