Chateau de Laubade VSOP Bas Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1042781

San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2005 : Gold Medal. Armagnac is located in Gascony (South West France), in a triangle between Bordeaux, Toulouse and the Pyrénées mountains. It is divided in three sub areas: Bas Armagnac, Ténareze and Haut-Armagnac. The Bas Armagnac is considered to offer the best terroir, producing very rich and unctuous brandies. Chateau de Laubade is located in the heart of the Bas Armagnac and is the largest single continuous-vineyard estate (230 acres). Built in 1855, the Chateau de Laubade is the property of the Lesgourgues family for 3 generations. It is the worldwide leader in the premium Bas Armagnac category. The controlled distillation of the white wines and the long aging in black oak barrels give the spirit a warm amber colour as well as a complex and unique balance. VSOP is a blend of various 6-year-old spirits combined to make a fruity, well-balanced Armagnac, with wood hints. The color is medium amber. The oak flavors from the aging in barrels are not overwhelming. This brandy develops gradually fragrances of vanilla, chocolate, nougat and violets. It finishes medium-long, bittersweet, and spicy; solid from top to bottom. Clayish-sandy soil. Baco, Colombard, Ugni-Blanc, Folle Blanche.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
