Château de Lacquy 是一個面積有400公頃的家族葡萄園,當中的20公頃位於法國西南部Gascony的Armagnac最佳地區。酒莊和建築物由1711年開始,都由同一 家族擁有,在十八世紀的報章報道已證明當時酒莊已有由自家蒸餾機出產雅文邑 (Armagnac)。至今300年歷史共11個世代,此酒莊是最古老的家族雅文邑生產者。

Château de Lacquy 位於這個「金三角」的中心名叫 Grand Bas-Armagnac,酒莊在湖泊旁邊,在歐洲最大的森林邊緣,有茂密樹林包圍。古橡樹、櫸木、榛子樹、野莓樹等,提供充足遮擋,也是多種野生動物棲 息地。20公頃的葡萄樹就種在這地域中心地帶。

Château de Lacquy XO 是不同年分,並且是特別優質葡萄的調合混和,它們全部都花了大部分時間於新木桶。混合調製版本來自完全天然的雅文邑,展現豐富、無限的香氣,只有優質純淨的雅文邑才有如此表現。

這一尊貴版本XO完全表達了酒莊獨特風土,是非常甜美和女性感覺的拔蘭地。

Tasting Notes:
Aged for 17 years, this is a signature X.O. of the estate, brown backed with a green collar. Very expressive and sweet nose with notes of candied nuts, oak, vanilla, dried figs and chocolate. Complex and ripe with a structure for a long finish and creamy notes of spice and vanilla, nicely balanced with great finesse.
