These really are prized armagnacs with lots of charisma and quality. The 1921 is a fine example of the distillers skills of more than three generations ago.
|Aroma||Rancio aromas with almond, hazelnuts and dried fruits, including date|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Very well balanced with complex prune flavours and a distinct rancio leading to an elegant finale. These older vintages are some of the finest still available.|
|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|
