Aged in oak barrels for many years and now in glass demijohns, very little of this vintage is left but a real gem from a past era with lots of pruney fruit and walnut flavours.
|Aroma||Deep prune and walnuts with hints of cedar and spices.|
|Distillation||Distilled at around 57 - 60 degrees. Lower than other brandies, providing greater wine flavours but less refinement than cognacs|
|Flavour||Pruney with roasted walnut tones. An intense rancio - a form of maderisation or enrichening created by the barrel tannins in the oak - 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|
