These armagnacs are still developing and show many fine qualities. The 1971 has benefitted from long barrel ageing and has many of the qualities of some that are older.
|Aroma||Butter, toffee, vanilla, flowers and orange.|
|Ageing||Aged in damp cellars|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Light and well-balanced flavours marked by orange and a long finish.|
|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|
