Prosper Delord, a roving distiller, founded Armagnac Delord in 1893. Today, the Delord family is distilling, ageing and blending their eaux-de-vie the exact same way their great-grandfather did. Hospitality, high quality, and international awards are their trade marks.
Bas-Armagnac, whose capital is Eauze, is to the west of the appellation. It runs over the Landes and the western part of the Gers. It represents 67% of the surfaces identified in Armagnac. In this part of the terroir, the soils are sandy silty, known as "tawny sands". Bas-Armagnac eaux-de-vie are delicate and very fruity.
Maison Delord has been producing and aging eaux-de-vie since 1893 in Lannepax in the Gers. We find through this 1978 vintage all the know-how of the house transmitted from generation to generation for more than 120 years.
Armagnac Delord 1978 has a rich and complex flavor profile with notes of dried fruit, vanilla, caramel, and spice. It is described as being smooth and well-balanced with a long and satisfying finish.
