Good armagnac in the traditional basquaise bottle with rich plummy flavours. These bottles are more expensive than the modern ones used today but were used for more than a hundred years.
|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||Pruney with some delicious roasted walnut tones with a richness highly regarded by connoisseurs. These post-war vintages are of great quality, but becoming short in supply.|
|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|
