The house of Laberdolive has been making vintage-dated Armagnacs since 1866 from wines produced on the land of Les Sables Fauves. The estate with 42 hectares is situated on exceptionally sandy soil and planted with the customary regional grapes: Baco, Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche. The production is tiny, and distillation traditionally takes place in an Armagnac Alambic on a wood fire. The previous results are stored in traditional 400 liter Gascogne casks, made from black oak trees harvested from its forests. The Laberdolive Armagnacs are handmade, vintage dated single-vineyard expressions of what an Armagnac should be.

The legend goes that Nikita Khrushchev once diverted his elaborate and heavily-guarded entourage to visit the distillery to acquire a bottle, and French President Jacques Chirac brought along a Laberdolive 1972 to toast on a state visit to China. These bottles are in all the top restaurants in Europe; David Ridgway, chef-sommelier at La Tour d'Argent in Paris, said that Laberdolive is "considered for a long time to be the benchmark of Armagnac." Today Laberdolive is managed by Pierre Laberdolive — a reticent and patient man, in complete harmony with his lands, his casks, and his Armagnac. His reputation as a cellarer is known all over France, and the world and his product are often called «The Gold of Armagnac.»
