The Delord family has been distilling brandy since 1875, first with a travelling pot still, then in 1925, setting up a permanent location.  Five generations later, they are still at it, growing and fermenting Ugni blanc, Folle Blanch and Colombard grapes from the superior soils of Bas-Armagnac, distilling wine into brandy and aging it in Gascon oak barrels.  We recently came across these vintage-dated Armagnacs and a small allocation was made available to us.  They are priced well below their competitors of similar age.

 

The varieties in this brandy are Ugni Blanc and Bacco, a variety you don't see much anymore.  Bottled at cask strength (47.5%), the amber colored spirit exhibits a wonderful aroma of Christmas spice.  On the tongue, the brandy is explosive, warm-to-hot, very dry and exotically spiced.  It's no shrinking violet.
