A well-balanced and supple Armagnac blend from a single estate.

Labiette Castille Bas Armagnacs are produced on one of the most renowned single estates in the Bas Armagnac region and they’ve won over 200 awards in the last 30 years. The estate was first founded in 1898 by a powerful French statesman. In 1974, it was acquired by the Lesgourgues family that produces the revered Armagnacs to this day.

Now, why is the 260-acres estate one of the most prestigious terroirs of the Armagnac AOC? It’s located right at the feet of the Pyrenees Mountains and it’s a mix of fawn-colored sands and clay. The vineyards grow all 4 traditional grapes - Ugni Blanc, Baco, Colombard and Folle Blanche - which is a rare practice today. The Lesgourgues family also makes sure the vineyard stays low yield and sustainable; a flock of 600 friendly sheep kindly takes care of organic fertilizing. A nearby oak forest provides wood for their casks. Oh, and the horse-riding figure on the label? It’s a tribute to the famous Musketeer of King Louis XIV of France, D'Artagnan, who was born in nearby Sorbets and was known for his bravery

Labiette Castille Bas Armagnac VSOP is an extremely well-balanced blend of 15 Brandies, each aged from 6-12 years. Crafted from Ugni-Blanc and Folle Blanche grapes as well as Baco and Colombard, all grape varieties are distilled and aged separately in Gascony oak. This makes the job of the Cellar Master François Lasportes easier so he can compose the most refined blends.
