At more than 50 years old, this is another wonderful example of a rich, fruity vintage Armagnac, this time presented in an 'Ariane' bottle.
|Aroma||Vanilla, butter, rancio, toffee, "creme brulée".|
|Ageing||Aged in damp cellars|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 54 - 58 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Mellow and well balanced flavours that linger in the mouth for some time after tasting.|
|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|
