Bas-Armagnac L'Authentique, Delord
The Delord Authentique is a blend of very old Armagnacs selected from different barrels that represent the most typical vintages from the Delord distillery.
It is an Armagnac with great complexity, combining aromas of vanilla, roasted coffee, cocoa, candied fruit and spices. In the mouth it is complex with vanilla, woody and roasted flavours, and notes of prune, walnut and dried fruits. Goes well with pear and almond cake.
Handsomely presented in a hinged wooden box.

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.
