Delord Bas-Argmanac Napolean


Delord Bas-Argmanac Napolean...$39.99 / 750ml     
    Woody nose with hints of “rancio” to come. Discreet aromas of vanilla and fruit are satisfying and smooth. Min. 10 years old. 

-Use of high quality fruit, harvested from the best sandy soils of the Bas Armagnac.
-No use of pesticides or fertilizers.
-A good use of the grape varietals:
  • 57% Ugni blanc (gives a good foundation)
  • 16% Colombard (herbal aromas)
  • 15% Folle Blanche (floral notes)
  • 12% Baco (gives roundness
-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.
