Château de Lacquy estate lies in Gascony, approximately 110 kilometres south of Bordeaux, in the Landes area of Gascony known as Bas-Armagnac. Owned by the same family since 1711, Château de Lacquy is the oldest family-owned estate producing Armagnac. Run for over 300 years by successive generations of men and women who are passionate about their calling, the estate is a veritable journey in time due to this remarkable stability and continuity.
Today, the estate covers approximately 400 hectares of adjoining land. Vineyards growing the grapes that produce the Armagnac cover twenty-two hectares of land. The estate has always maintained a tradition of excellence and pursues the same demanding standard today. Every single step in the process of making the Armagnac, from tending the grapevines to making the wine, distillation, ageing and bottling, is performed on the estate in the tradition that is over three centuries old.
Chateau Lacquy 1978 is 100% Baco Armagnac distilled in 1978 and since that year, ageing on oak in the wine cellars at Château de Lacquy. This Armagnac is still lively, with a spicy woodsy nose and dashes of vanilla and citrus. Powerful mouth, dominated by spice and leather. Very long on the palate with a suave finish.
