This is richer and smoother than the younger Delord armagnacs since it has aged in oak for longer. It is great value for an armagnac that was made over 50 years ago.
|Aroma||Wood, pine wood, coffee and rancio.|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||On the palate there are flavours of coffee and rancio together with vanilla, butter and liquorice. Very well balanced.|
|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|
