Château de Laubade was founded in 1870 in the heart of Gascony, the original home of distillation in France, and has been owned by the Lesgourgues family since 1974. The vineyards, occupying 105 hectares, are situated in the top growth Bas Armagnac region; the grape varieties Ugni Blanc, Baco, Colombard and Folle Blanche are cultivated using organic methods, then vinified and distilled at the château. With vintages and ageing stock dating back to 1855, Château de Laubade is renowned in the French and export markets for producing the highest quality Armagnac and is a benchmark for the region. Laubade Extra is a blend of eaux-de-vie that have been aged for more than 30 years in traditional 400-litre oak barrels. This lengthy stay in barrel allows the spirit to develop complex and rich notes that include coffee, chocolate, tobacco, dried fruit and hazelnut, whilst becoming round and refined on the palate. The tree depicted on the label pays homage to the first one planted by Maurice Lesgourgues on the estate back in 1974. A truly wonderful example of Armagnac that is beautifully presented in a bespoke decanter and elegant gift box.
