Tasting Notes

Made in the heart of the Bas Armagnac region, there is an intense and typical nose, in which you will distinguish aromas of vanilla, coffee, pepper and praline. The flavours in the mouth are balanced with a certain generosity brought by the alcohol. Aromas of pepper in the mouth as well as liquorice. Long and intense aromatic persistence. This wonderful Armagnac makes an ideal gift for someone born in 1969. The bottle comes with a wooden box.

Winemakers Note

Situated in Bas-Armagnac, vineyards are made up of Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties. The distillery is to be found in the village of Lannepax, the ancestral home of the Delord family. The distillation, the most essential and fascinating stage in the production of Armagnac, takes place at the beginning of November through to the end of December. Their old Sier Armagnac alambics, that they wouldn't part with for all the gold in the world, produce less than 30 litres of eau-de-vie an hour. Delord cellars contain old treasured vintages and include more than 700 oak barrels that protect and age the Armagnac eau-de-vie dating from the 20th Century to the present day. Delord thanks to their vision have stored such quantities of good Armagnacs for such a long time that they have the resource to be very competitive in price for the same quality. They also concentrate on Armagnac styles, very rounded, soft and easy to drink, that they are amongst the most successful producers.
