One of the great difficulties with good armagnac is that when it gets old it also gets scarce. There is very little of any old vintages left now and this is no exception.
Did you know? In 1949 the Berlin Blockade officially ended and The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) was established. The Geneva Convention was agreed and Mao Tse Tung proclaimed the Communist People’s Republic of China.
|Aroma||Delicate aromas of orange, toffee, vanilla and almonds.|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Full and well balanced with flavours dominated by vanilla and a hint of underwood. A long and intense finish.|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Baco|
|Reduction and Strength||Delord minimise their dilutions wherever possible, but all of their armagnacs are bottled at 40% abv.|
|Viticulture||The climate is soft and humid with sunny autumns and the soil is made of siliceous clay which is poor in lime, giving Bas Armagnacs a lightness and fragrance with subtle tastes|
