Delord - Armagnac - 1962 - 700 ml - Wooden Box
WHAT THE PRODUCERS ARE SAYING
“A distinct character…. All of the history of Armagnac and our house. From 1900 to the present day, our « Paradise » safeguards the bonbonnes that protect our oldest Armagnac vintages.” Silvain and Gerôme Delord
At more than 50 years old, this is another wonderful example of a rich, fruity vintage Armagnac, this time presented in an 'Ariane' bottle. Aromas of vanilla, butter, rancio, toffee, and "creme brulée".
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.
