Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
Beautiful silver moon colour, clear and brilliant. Open nose of fruit brandy and fresh grape juice. The attack is greedy and fruity, smooth and harmonious, with freshness and grape juice. Long and persistent finish, on the greediness.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Armagnac is born of the confrontation of cultures, Roman by the introduction of the vine, Arab with the still and Celtic with the barrel.
Domain and appellation
Château de Laubade
Founded in 1870, the first owner of the Château de Laubade was Joseph Noulens, former French ambassador to St. Petersburg and Minister of War, Finance and Agriculture under the government of Georges Clémenceau. Today, the estate belongs to the Lesgourgues family, who have owned it since 1974. Floc de Gascogne is an Armagnac liqueur wine obtained by combining fresh grape juice and Armagnac from the estate.
- Terroir: Appellation of Controlled Origin since 1990, the Floc is developed with the utmost care beginning with the best Gascony grape varieties: Colombard, Ugni Blanc, and Gros Manseng for the Floc Blanc. Its region of appellation is the Armagnac Appellation.
- Production: Blend of fresh grape juice (2/3) and young Armagnac (1/3). Aged in “worn” oak barrels to obtain the perfect alliance between the fruit and the Armagnac.
