Region: Armagnac - France
Grapes:Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Baco (Blend)
Rancio aromas with prunes and quince paste and hints of almonds. Well-balanced on the palate with notes of candied prunes and apricots, cocoa and wood. Good length.
Story:A 1962 vintage Armagnac from renowned producer Delord.
This is a great opportunity to taste incredibly old spirit at a fantastic price, relatively speaking. It showcases some hallmarks you'd expect of a spirit well over 50 years old, delicate woody notes and restrained fruits.
About the winery:
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 liters 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, has 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.
