Delicate and soft, this has aromatics of vanilla and spice, with a rounded caramel flavor that's accented with mouthwatering cardamom, clove and dried orange-peel notes.

- Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast (Dec, 2012)
Each vintage entirely comes from a single harvest and distillation year. Each vintage clearly expresses its age, which is a specificity of Armagnac and the signature of the house. More than 80 different vintages matured in Château de Laubade’s cellars. Currently, the oldest vintage is from 1888. Each Vintage tells a particular story. A story dealing with the ongoing climate changes, with the unique Cellar Masters’ know-how that has followed one another, along the generations. The casks’ quality and the cellars’ temperature participate to the vintage special identity as well. Finally, each vintage is a particular chapter of the estate and draws on its long history, rich know-how and dedication to quality from several generations of men and women’s high involvement.

Château de Laubade only releases its vintages after a minimum of 15 years of aging in oak casks from Gascony.

The initial bouquet offers wonderful aromas of pipe tobacco, nougat, almond paste and old, well-worn leather; aeration sees the nuttiness take precedence and a brown-butter element emerge. Palate entry is keenly nutty, moderately sweet, cocoa butter-like, and a touch oaky or resiny; midpalate adds a touch of toasted marshmallow. Full-throttle finish in terms of taste. Scrumptious.

The nosing passes find smells of chocolate -covered red cherries, old saddle leather, sweet-tart hints of grapefruit, kiwi and dried apricot. The palate entry is lush, fruity and intensely honeyed; the midpalate is creamy and concentrated on caramel, toffee and maple tastes. Ends silky, semisweet and nutty. A stunning B-A worth twice the price.

In love with his South West and its centuries old traditions, this highly respected chef of the local Landaise cuisine introduced his son Francis to the culinary arts, to great wines and to the fine Gascon eaux-de-vie. It is by cultivating this taste for tradition and authenticity that Francis Darroze mastered the talent for discovering individual estate Armagnacs, traveling all over the famous Bas-Armagnac terroir with his knowledgeable and exacting wine loving father and tasting hidden treasures in little, out of reach, unknown estates. These first discoveries date back to the 50s and 60s, then intensified from 1970 with the construction of a cellar specifically dedicated to aging. His son Marc, a trained oenologist, joined his father to follow in his footsteps in 1996. Both complementing each other and both ‘treasure hunters’, as Martine Nouet nicknamed them in her book 1/2 Eaux-de-vie: le guide », they have roamed the lands of Armagnac for all these years searching for this golden liquid that they offer to you today. Treasure hunters firstly by taste, but also to satisfy a loyal clientele looking for quality eaux-de-vie, together they are the discoverers of Armagnac. Today, Marc Darroze runs the company alone as Francis has taken his well-deserved retirement. He continues his work however, like a guardian with a watchful eye, sometimes like an antiquarian initiated by his father to help us make these treasures accessible.

The first nosings detect dark fudge, vanilla extract and dried herbs; following aeration layered aromas of oak/pine, old saddle leather and crème caramel candy are added-a gorgeous bouquet. Palate entry is long, deep and bittersweet; at midpalate the flavor turns toasty/smoky, sap-like and chewy. Finishes on a maple-like note that's semisweet and lip-smackingly delicious.

Nosing finds luxuriously mature aromas of old library leather, dried yellow fruit, nougat, cocoa paste, oak, honey, candied orange and even some black pepper. Palate entry is full-weighted, sweet, concentrated, nutty and buttery; midpalate adds rancio, honey, earth and apricot nectar. Concludes sweet, tobacco-like, mildly smoky and marshmallow-like. Flat-out delicious.

Semisweet aroma leaps forward emitting toasty, almost smoky fragrances of campfire, charcoal, pipe tobacco, blue cheese and rancio. Taste is elegant, refined and supple, showing mature tastes of oak, marshmallow, honey, oloroso Sherry, black tea and coffee. A seamless six decade-old jewel.
