Armagnac is a type of Brandy made in the Gascony region in South West France. At the end of the 19th Century, Jean Lesgourgues created his own brand known as “Duc de Loussac”, and passed it along to his grandson Maurice Lesgourgues in 1974. This Armagnac is produced in the estate owned Château de Laubade (Bas Armagnac) in Peyrehorade in Gascony, with 260 acres of single estate vineyard.
The fruit is selected from exclusive estate vineyards in Bas Armagnac, using the four traditional grap varieties of Ugni-Blanc, Folle Blanche, Colombard and Baco. The fruit is grown with respect to sustainable agriculture, using organic manure produced by 600 ewes. The Armagnac is “home-made”, single distilled varietal by varietal. This is the only house coopering its own casks from Gascony oak, in which the product matures for 6-12 years, maintaing seperation between varietal and vintages.
Bright Amber color, delicate and velvety notes of toasted almond and fresh bread crumb with a fine palate of oaky notes and hints of vanilla.
Enjoy as an aperitif or after a meal as a digestive with an expresso. It’s also a trendy pick as a cocktail base!
