Each Vintage is the result of a particular year.

100% of a Vintage is obtained by the distillation of wine only during that specific year.

80 Proof / 40% ABV

The house uses the main grape varieties coming from the vineyard located in the Bas Armagnac. Predominantly Baco 22A and Ugni Blanc, and secondary Colombard and Folle Blanche.

The white wines obtained offers a good acidity and a low alcohol content that are suitable for the traditional distillation.

The wines are distilled in a continuous “Armagnacais” column still : this is the perfect way for distilling our wines in Armagnac, hence capturing most of the flavors contained into the wines. Each grape varietal is distilled separately, 24 hour a day, 7 days a week during the autumn season until Christmas time.

The freshly “brandy” comes out from the column still at around 60% alcohol.

The “brandies” are then stored in French oak barrels (430L each).
The Labiette Castille Armagnacs age in 100% local Gascony oak. These casks will fit best our armagnacs, giving them time to grow and to capture the genuine flavors and tannins from the oak. Annually, the cask will lose about 3% of evaporation. This qualitative phenomenon is know as “Angel’s share” (la Part des Anges in French).
