The 1977 armagnac from this firm has really good aromatic flavours. It has aged well and has characteristics of armagnacs which have been made from earlier years.
|Aroma||Natural wood, pepper, vanilla, cumin and incense.|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Aromatic flavours and a great depth and length.|
|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|
