First, ask yourself, when’s the last time you saw a spirit with a 15-year age statement for less than $60? This Armagnac comes with the highest recommendation from both Bounty Hunter and Wine Enthusiast, whose critics consistently rate it above 90-Points, for those keeping score at home. Aromas of vanilla, honey and pipe tobacco pull you into a fat, creamy entry where dark toffee and cocoa take charge. It’s a masterful balance of fruit and wood as smooth and deep as you could dream. Delord stands among the oldest houses in a region that too often gets overshadowed by the marketing prowess of Cognac. Do yourself (and your wallet) a favor and fall for a French cousin that knows how to deliver a serious treat for the senses.
There is brandy, then there is Armagnac… and then there is Delord. Producing world-class Bas-Armagnac from family-owned vineyards and utilizing antique copper pot stills, the Delord family has been crafting some of the finest brandies from the region for well over 100 years. Today, the fourth and fifth generations keep the tradition and dying art form of alembic distillation alive for the world to taste.
