The nose is uniquely intense and develops fine aromas of orange peel, roasted and grilled bread, completed by notes of cinnamon. Savory roundness and seductive complexity in mouth.
Will perfectly pair with chocolate cakes and with a flambe pie prepared with the same XO. To be tasted as a digestive with friends or family. Chateau de Laubade was built in 1870 in the heart of the noblest area of the appellation: the Bas Armagnac and is today the premier Armagnac property. Today, the third generation is actively involved in the quest of excellence of the property, composed of 260 acres of single vineyard, to make Chateau de Laubade an undisputed reference among the Armagnac category. More than 80 different vintages matured in Chateau de Laubade's cellars. Each vintage entirely comes from a single harvest and distillation year. 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. Chateau de Laubade only releases its vintages after a minimum of 15 years of ageing in oak casks from Gascony.
