Distilled in 2012 and bottled in 2019 this is from a single vinyeard of 100% Colombard and finished in a French single malt cask. The aromas are fresh heather, honey and a touch of caramel. A little air and stone fruits, carmalized apples and a little vanilla, come out. The palate is rancio, dry soil and dusty cellar balanced with dulce de leche dried apricots and soft barley feel.

Château de Laubade is located in the small village of Sorbets, in the heart of the Bas Armagnac. The château was originally built in 1870 with a distinctive take on the Victorian style. Early in the 20th Century, the Chateau was owned by the Ambassador to St. Petersburg during the Russian Revolution, Joseph Noulens. The great statesman led quite a life; his second wife Jeanne Paquin is considered to have been Coco Chanel’s primary muse. The vineyards surrounding the house were used by Mr. Noulens as a pilot farm, useful when he was named as Agriculture Minister in 1919. Jumping ahead in history, in 1974 Maurice Lesgourgues bought Château de Laubade. At the time, he said seeing the house was love at first sight. Not only was the property exceptional, but the terroir was excellent and the chais (warehouses) on the property were full of the work from the previous owners. Maurice’s son Jean-Jacques immediately started work on the property, upgrading the facilities, while maintaining the look and feel of the house. Since 1998, the third generation of the Lesgourgues family, Arnaud and Denis, have carried on the torch of excellence for Château de Laubade.
