A prestigious Armagnac from the oldest Armagnac-producing family estate.
Chateau de Lacquy is the oldest family-owned estate producing Armagnac. It’s been in the family since 1711 (that was the time of Louis XIV, BTW) and the present owner Gilled de Boisseson is the 10th generation to run Chateau de Lacquy. Armagnacs must be produced in the Armagnac region in Gascony in southwest France and Chateau de Lacquy Armagnacs are one of the most esteemed and prestigious Armagnacs. Everything is produced on the estate and the stuff that gets bottled comes exclusively from their own vineyards, distillery and ageing cellars. The vines grow on special soil of light marine sand with clay and shell sediments. Their Armagnacs are aged in 110-gallon French oak barrels – without any additives, colorants, sugar or wooded caramel, naturally.
All Chateau de Lacquy Armagnacs are elegant and extremely balanced, known for their aromas and flavors of fresh or candied fruits, flowers, spices, tobacco, cocoa, vanilla, cream, nuts, and toasted brioche. Chateau de Lacquy Armagnac Reference is one of their most prestigious bottles. It greets you with an elegant nose of ripe grape juice, candied prunes, and cinnamon spikes. The refined palate is slightly sweet with vanilla, wild flowers, fresh prunes, and apples compote. Expect the finish to last forever all while being very, very smooth.
