The 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.
The estate has remained intact since the Middle Ages. It passed from the hands of one powerful Gascony family into the hands of another remained in the possession of the Mesmes family until 1668, then the Pontac family (owners of Château Haut-Brion) until 1711.
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.
