1993 Delord Bas Armagnac (700ml)
Distilled from the 1993 harvest, this elegant, easy-drinking vintage-dated expression offers mild aromas of dried fruits, cigar box and tobacco but is richer and fuller in the mouth; Despite leaning towards the drier side, sugars rebound at the finish, expressed as dried figs, prunes and late hints of vanilla and caramel followed by a gentle spike of pepper heat. Bottled in September 2022. 40% Alc./Vol.
Situated in Bas-Armagnac, Delord's distillery is to be found in the village of Lannepax, the ancestral home of the Delord family. They comment, "Our old Sier Armagnac alambics, that we wouldn't part with for all the gold in the world, produce less than 30 litres of eau-de-vie an hour. Our cellars contain our 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".
