Chateau de Laubade

Château de Laubade, built in 1870, is composed of 260 acres of single vineyard, located in Sorbets d’Armagnac in the heart of the noblest area of the appellation: the Bas Armagnac.
The Lesgourgues family has been running the estate since 1974.

Château de Laubade is one of the very few properties growing the four traditional grape varieties of the appellation: with 47% of Ugni Blanc, 30% of Baco 22A, 15% of Colombard and 8% of Folle Blanche. The house, is the largest producer of Baco, defends this emblematic grape variety in Armagnac.

The ‘home-made’ single continuous distillation is perfectly controlled and allows extracting the best aromas and flavors from the grapes grown and vinified at the property.

The Cellar master brings the highest care in order to provide an appropriate ageing for the eaux-de-vie, exclusively in oak barrel from Gascony. Once again, Laubade adopts a different strategy, being the only Armagnac House coopering its own barrels. The oaks are carefully selected in various forests surrounding the property, to then be air-dried during a minimum of three years and carefully crafted by our cooper. The cellar Master carefully oversees and guarantees the finest maturation and the blending of the brandies, vintage by vintage, using 3.000 400-liter casks, split into seven different ageing cellars.

Chateau de Laubade known as “the most awarded Armagnac house” with more than 180 medals over the last 30years, is the sole Armagnac house awarded WORLD CLASS DISTILLERY in 2016 - and for 7 years in a row - at the World Spirit Award.
