Story

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.

Production

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, blended with traditional grapes vinified seperately and aged 15 to 25 years. The blend is made with over 40 eaux-de-vie.

Tasting Notes

“Bouquet offers tight, semisweet, toffee-covered apple and wood resin fragrances. Flavor is taut, sweet and moderately oily. Finish is long, pleasingly sour, oily and engagingly nut-like. A beauty.” - 95 pts Wine Enthusiast
