  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. Cognac Tesseron Lot 90 XO Selection
    Cognac Tesseron Lot 90 XO Selection

    This has an average age of around 10 years and is a terrific value XO. Made from the three terroirs in Cognac: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois. Predominantly distilled in the 90's, the Selection's unique character comes from long ageing in Limousin oak barrels, which adds fullness, spice and sweetness. The pure aroma offers up pears, spiced apples, maple syrup, and vanilla. The palate is silky smooth, with perfectly integrated spirit and a mouth coating texture. A very fine Cognac and a superb XO for the money.

    "Tesseron Lot 90 (40 per cent) is a feistier, sweeter, mouthful..." ANDREW JEFFORD, Financial Times, 2004

  3. Cognac Tesseron Lot 76 XO Tradition
    Cognac Tesseron Lot 76 XO Tradition

    An exceptional blend of 25- 30 year old, reserve stocks of both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne Cognacs, distilled predominantly in the mid-1970s and then matured in old casks until bottling. It has a striking copper colour. On the nose there are lifted fragrances of roasted nuts, wood spice, leatherwood honey, and baked pears, while the deep palate is viscous, dense even, with notes of ripe pear, almond, oloroso sherry, orange peel, and again, leatherwood honey. The finish is long and warming with hints of brown sugar, vanilla and salt. A stunning, mouth filling wine.

    The age alone- not to mention the smooth, seductive texture and the extraordinarily complex flavours of butterscotch and cream that linger for ages- makes the price of this magnificent cognac rather attractive. MAX ALLEN, the Australian 'Wish' magazine, April 2008
