Rated one of the top ten spirits of all time! Prosper Delord
travelled around the Armagnac region
with only his pot still and his cart drawn by two cows, in the search of a method to produce the finest Armagnac there is.
His son later founded the company in 1925 and used the knowledge that his father gave him to perfect the tradition and quality
of this magnificent liquid. Their vineyards expand over 20 hectares
of land. In their ageing cellars one can find Armagnac dating back to 1904.
Armagnac is the oldest brandy
distilled in France
, however the vaster region of Cognac built itself more recognition across Europe (and France for that matter) and also the production of Cognac
has always been bigger. That does not mean Armagnac
is in any way inferior, au contraire mon frère
; it is small distilleries with grand heritage like Delord that are a treat for the senses
and should not be overseen!
Having aged for at least a quarter of a century
in Maison Delord's cellars amongst a thousand other casks enjoying their slumber, each bottle of the Bas Armagnac 25 Year Old
is filled and wax sealed by hand on site as it waits to be enjoyed by you. The 25 Year Old earned a score of 96 points
from Wine Enthusiast
and five stars
from F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
, which recognized it as one of the top 10 greatest spirits of all time.
