Delord 25 Year Old Bas Armagnac 750ml

SKU #1055746 96-100 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Best Buy* The nose is biscuity, caramel-like, cream Sherry-like with a touch of cheese-like rancio. The palate entry tastes like bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa butter, chocolate-covered raisins and dark honey; the midpalate is fruity and less bittersweet than the entry, making for a succulent aftertaste. A genuine classic.  (9/ 2006)

K&L Notes

NOTE: THIS IS A WAX-SEALED BOTTLE WHICH CAN CRUMBLE DURING SHIPMENT DUE TO THE JOSTLING OF THE NECK. WE CANNOT REFUND BOTTLES WITH OPENED SEALS IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHIP THIS BOTTLE.This is beautiful, soft, and elegant brandy that shows brooding notes of cocoa, roasted nuts and baking spices. The dried fruit really comes through on the mid-palate and the finish is a burst of cinnamon with a silky smooth exit. To get a 25 year Armagnac for this price is already a great deal, but to have it taste this good is practically criminal. The Delord family who have been making this spirit since the late 1800s.

Hands down, the Delord 25 is one of my all time favorite Armagnacs. First thing I get on the nose are dried dates, dark raisins, apricots, followed by a little toffee and creamy caramel sauce. The palate promises all of the notes on the nose, plus a little potpourri, cedar chest spice, and toasted almond- rancio perhaps? I've hosted a number of armagnac tastings at home, and even when the Delord 25 year old competes with vintage armagnacs from top producers, it is almost always voted the favorite.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
