Armagnacs from a single year are often the result of several distillations and can be enchanting, this is certainly one of them. The flavours here are all plummy and pruney, rich and voluptuous.
|Aroma||Deep prune and walnut complexity with some oak and nutty aromas.|
|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. A deep richness which is highly regarded by connoisseurs.|
|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|
