1999 Bas-Armagnac, Delord
A great Armagnac with wonderful aromas of yellow peach, tea angelica, candied orange and spices. Distilled at lower temperatures than other brandies at around 54-58 degrees, this Armagnac provides greater wine flavours with less refinement than cognacs.
Beautifully round with satisfying length and fruity flavours of dried citrus, grape and mandarin finish.
It was Prosper Delord, a travelling distiller, who initially fell in love with the magnificent eau-de-vie of Armagnac. In 1893, he founded the house of Delord that became the Armagnac Delord Brothers, when his two sons Gaston and Georges took over the alambic still and followed in their father's footsteps with the same passion for Armagnac. Today, Gaston's sons Jacques and Pierre Delord continue the family tradition, along with the next generation, Jerome and Sylvain.
