Delord Blanche Armagnac

Blanche Armagnac Delord

Blanche is a new A.O.C. (Appellation d'Origine Controlée) approved in 2005. It represents a renaissance of traditional Armagnac eau-de-vie rekindled by the producers. Coming from the same Armagnac terroir, it is the result of  a thousand year old savoir-faire of distillation.

 

The new AOC defines the production conditions of the Blanche:

  • It can only be produced in the Armagnac zone from parcels of vines already identified.
  • It can be produced with the four main grape varietals from Armagnac; Ugni Blanc, Baco, Folle Blanche or Colombard. (Delord's Blanche Armagnac is produced wholly from Colombard grapes and is the only such one currently available on the market). 
  • It must be kept in inert containers as soon as the distillation is finished and can only then be considered for assessment after three months of maturation.

Tasting Notes

Delord’s Blanche is rich and fruity, strong and round, and therefore can be consumed in a variety of ways:  

  • Pure, at room temperature, chilled or with an ice cube, just so you can appreciate the true beautiful flavors and roundness
  • With caviar, smoked fish and numerous desserts such as lemon tart, key lime pie, tart tatin and lemon sabayon.
  • In a variety of cocktails: it marries well with citrus flavors, red berries, kiwi, and chocolate. Use Delord Blanche as a replacement for vodka in any cocktail to add a depth of flavor.
