Château de Laubade – XO – Bas-Armagnac

The nose is racy, well-built and offers power, a small concentration as well as a fine intensity. It reveals notes of dried orange, marmalade and small notes of dried lemon combined with hints of dried peach, pear, dried lime, quenette, rancio as well as a hint of grilled oak and a very discreet hint of pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, suave and offers a fine mineral frame, a good structure, a very fine freshness, a fine straightness, a fine juiciness, finesse, a certain delicacy as well as a fine unctuosity. In the mouth this Armagnac expresses notes of marmalade, dried orange, dried lemon and small notes of dried apple, dried /crushed peach combined with a touch of zest as well as a subtle touch of tobacco, spices, grilled oak and a very discreet hint of gray pepper (in the background).
