Delord Vintage Armagnac

Delord Bas-Armagnac
Born in 1875, Prosper Delord started the company as an itinerant distiller. He gained a reputation for his dedication and expertise by carting his traveling pot still around to the farms in the Bas Armagnac region. When his son Gaston took over in 1925 he officially founded the company name and established the business as a permanent site in Lannepax.  Today, great grandsons Jerome and Sylvain carry on the same tradition, having established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. Owners of a prime 30 hectare vineyard in the heart of the Bas Armagnac, (widely known as the 1st Cru), they have been distilling, ageing and blending their eaux-de-vie the exact same way their great-grandfather did. Their ageing cellars contain Armagnacs dating back to 1904.

Technical information:
  • Use of high quality fruit, harvested from the best sandy soils of the Bas Armagnac.
  • No use of pesticides or fertilizers
  • A particularly slow single distillation process.
  • A distillation at low temperature (around 52 to 58 degrees), which enables more flavors, fatty acids and character to remain in the spirit.
  • Use of 10% Gascon oak to give good tannins, darker color and beautiful spices.
  • More ageing than required by law.
Grape varietals:
  • 57% Ugni blanc (gives a good foundation)
  • 16% Colombard (herbal aromas)
  • 15% Folle Blanche (floral notes)
  • 12% Baco (gives roundness)
