Château de Laubade
Château de Laubade (Est'd 1870) is owned and run by the Lesgourges family in Gascony, South-West France for three generations. The estate is composed of 105ha of vines in the best terroir of Bas Armagnac. Laubade uses its own pot still (alembic) and distills each variety separately.
The Cellar Master of Laubade ages the spirits vintage by vintage using more than 2,800 barrels of Gascon oak - each made by their own cooper. This inventory, certainly the most important in the Armagnac region, is vital to produce the best spirits.
Sheep roam amongst the vines each year, from October until May, to produce the necessary fertilising for the sustainable agriculture put in place at Laubade for the last 30 years.
In the cellars of Laubade, over 70 different ageing vintages can be found, a genuine testimony of history. The oldest vintage dates back to 1888. Mitchell and Son keep a library of vintages in stock and anniversary bottles are especially popular. We may source any available vintage directly from the Château. Please contact us for a quote.
