Other reviews... The bouquet displays off-dry aromas of gum, coffee bean, vanilla extract, nut butter, dark caramel and molasses. Palate entry is succulent, candied and sweet; the midpalate owns sweet flavors of dark caramel, honey, old sweet oak and maple. Finishes semisweet, chocolaty and luscious. 92 points -  winenthusiast.com

More than eighty different vintages are currently being matured in Laubade’s cellars. The oldest vintage is from 1888. Each year tells a story dealing with the ongoing climate changes, cask quality and the cellar's temperature - all of which define the vintage identity. A culmination of rich know-how and dedication to quality from three generations, the Lesgourgues family continue to run their own 260 acre property. Planted to Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche & Baco, each variety is distilled seperately. Notably, Laubade remains alone in coopering their own Gascon oak casks. Sustainable agriculture is also the standard here (manure is produced by 600 ewes).
