Concours des Armagnacs à Eauze 2005 - GOLD Medal
Pale amber with golden tints, this award-winning armagnac is a great example from the House of Delord.
|Aroma||Butter, orange, very fine wood, nuts and brioche.|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Round, supple and mellow with flavours of fine wood and toffee,|
|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|
