Delord 25 year Bas Armagnac 40% 700ml
$166.00
Delord 25 years old is elegant on the nose with peppery and spicy notes, it is in the mouth that this Armagnac will unveil its complexity of cocoa, spices (pepper), well-blended tannins, vanilla, rancio (walnut). A great Bas-Armagnac eau-de-vie... possibly the best value spirit we do! 'The deep, old copper penny colour is reminiscent of aged tawny Porto; flawless purity. The potent spirit races from the copita in the initial aromatic burst, leaving behind dried aromas of raisins, prunes and herbs; aeration serves to alter the aromatic direction as the bouquet turns biscuity, caramel-like, honeyed, cream sherry-like, and even dark chocolate, with more than a passing perfume of cheese-like rancio; wow. The palate entry is suggestive of bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa butter, chocolate covered raisins, and dark honey; at mid-palate the taste profile becomes fruitier than the entry and less bitter-sweet, making for a succulent aftertaste that's spectacularly satisfying. As good as twenty-year-old Armagnac can get. A genuine classic.' - 5 Stars, Paul Pacult.   Tasting Notes: Colour: deep amber, shiny clear, olive green reflections. Nose: soft spices, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, gingerbread. Advanced wood rancio (walnut). Palate: advanced wood, pepper, vanilla, rounded tannins, rancio (walnut). Initial cocoa, supple, soft and long final.   CLICK HERE to shop more Delord

A young, vibrant calvados distilled from apple and pear. This 2013 vintage comes from distiller/farmer Victor Gontier, who’s located in the Domfrontais region. According to the importers, “Long after the outcome of mobile phones, calling Victor Gontier on the only landline by their entrance door, one would enjoy a cacophony of chook noises , roosters calls, pigs squeals in the courtyard, confirming the authenticity of the place and thus of its production.” The controlled Domfrontais appellation requires at least 35 percent pear juice, which gives a softer character and lends itself to quicker maturation.
