When looking for the best bang for your buck in Armagnac, there seem to be a plethora of options. Delord has been producing top notch values since 1875. Expertly crafted, this XO expression is around 15 years old and shows wonderful richness, depth and complexity. A hint sweeter than some other XOs we have tasted with nougat, caramel and figgy fruit notes jumping out of the glass. Balance and depth on the palate through the finish had us pouring a few more tastes. Finish your family dinner with this and everyone goes to bed happy!
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.
