K&L Notes

*Double Gold Medal and Best Armagnac, San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2005* Armagnac is located in Gascony (South West France), in a triangle between Bordeaux, Toulouse, and the Pyrénées mountains. It is divided into 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. Château 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 Château de Laubade is the property of the Lesgourgues family for three 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 color as well as a complex and unique balance. The XO is a blend of very fine, subtle and elegant spirits, the youngest being 12 years old and up to 25 years old. The resulting Bas Armagnac is rounded and deep. The color is bright bronze leaning to copper. Developed flavors of almond butter and nougat with a hint of smoke. The Baco, Colombard, Ugni-Blanc, and Folle Blanche are grown in clayish-sandy soil.
