gite de Lascanes

The Domaine


It is the sandy clay soil of Grand-Bas-Armagnac, known as "terre-buc", well known to sommeliers and oenologists, which produces the domain's fruity armagnac. Traditional growing methods are employed, with the use of (organic) fertilisers, spraying and especially weedkillers kept to a minimum...


The vineyard covers 30 hectares at the border of the Landes and the Gers at Mauvezin d’Armagnac. ¼ of the vineyard is for the distillation: Baco 22A and Folle-Blanche (more about armagnacs...) ; ½ for white wines: Gros-Manseng, Colombard, Sauvignon blanc et gris, Ugni-blanc; ¼ for the red and rosé wines: Tannat, Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet-Franc...
