A wonderfully run firm with lots of good armagnacs. Despite its young age, this 15 year old is really fine, showing good balance and fruit.
|Aroma||Prunes and dried fruits and an aromatic richness with notes of soft spices|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Plums and prunes with some delicious almond nutty tones and notes of soft spices such as cinnamon|
|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|
