  1. Delord Bas Armagnac XO 10 yr 200ml Mini's
    Delord Bas Armagnac XO 10 yr 200ml Mini's

    Situated in Bas-Armagnac, vineyards are made up of Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties. The distillery is to be found in the village of Lannepax, the ancestral home of the Delord family. The distillation, the most essential and fascinating stage in the production of Armagnac, takes place at the beginning of November through to the end of December. Their old Sier Armagnac alambics, that they wouldn't part with for all the gold in the world, produce less than 30 litres of eau-de-vie an hour. Delord cellars contain old treasured vintages and include more than 700 oak barrels that protect and age the Armagnac eau-de-vie dating from the 20th Century to the present day.

    Delord thanks to their vision have stored such quantities of good Armagnacs for such a long time that they have the resource to be very competitive in price for the same quality. They also concentrate on Armagnac styles, very rounded, soft and easy to drink, that they are amongst the most successful producers.

    Caramel, candy, vanilla, nut and a whole selection of tasting goodies. A rustic opening which rounds out all the way with hints of rancio that travels from fruitiness to sweetness and vice versa. A spiral of dried fruit, citrus peel, vanilla, caramel, spiced oak, grape, nutty, rancio, prunes, cinnamon.

  2. Erba Volant Chinato 750ml
    Erba Volant Chinato 750ml
    This is where it all began for Sergio and Lorenzo. Both being grape-growers and winemakers, most of the botanicals, fruit and grapes/wine for their products are sourced within the Nizza zone in Monferrato. Unlike Barolo Chinato, the Erba Volant Chinato is based on Barbera, a variety regarded most at home in Nizza, and one that works superbly due to its refreshing brightness and acidity.

    Blended with their in-house mix of aromatic herbs, including cardo gobbo di Nizza Monferrato (a regional vegetable - also called 'hunchback thistle' due to the cultivation technique - and a key component of bagna cauda). After around 9 months of maceration, the herbs and spices (along with pure alcohol and sugar) are added to the Barbera. This has notes of bitter orange, anise, cinnamon and a delicate touch of vanilla. 16% alc.
