A family-owned winery established in 1820, and located in the heartland of Gascony. Things began with Jean Dominique Laudet, a former spice merchant in the French Antilles who decided to return home and begin producing Armagnac. The family continued Armagnac production until 1970, when Noël Laudet, former steward of Château Beychevelle decided to diversify and begin the production of dry white wines. In 2007, eighth generation Cyril Laudet took over from his grandfather. Together with his wife Julie they have given the winery a breath of fresh air by expanding its wine production - now in biodynamic conversion - and re-introducing small batch Armagnac production.
