Marie Duffau Bas Armagnac Napoleon 750ml750ml
This is a staff favorite for a reason. Aged a minimum of 6 years, this brandy routinely earns praise from Wine Enthusiast, the NY Times, and Decanter, just to name a few! Produced using only the best grapes — including Ugni Blanc, Bacco, Colombard and Folle Blanche — harvested from the best soils in Bas Armagnac, all without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. On the nose and palate, enticing, cozy notes of cocoa, orange zest, cake batter, and vanilla are buoyed by soft tannins, balanced acidity, and the slightest touch of rancio.
Born in 1875, Prosper Delord started out as an itinerant distiller. He gained a reputation for his dedication and expertise by carting his traveling pot still around to farms in the Bas Armagnac region. Later, he married Marie Duffau and in 1925 they officially founded the company with their son Gaston. They established the business as a permanent site in Lannepax.
Today, great grandsons Jérôme and Sylvain carry on the same tradition and have established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. Owners of a prime 44-hectare vineyard in the heart of Bas Armagnac, (widely known as the 1st Cru), they have been distilling, aging and blending their eau de vie in the exact same way their great grandfather: using high-quality fruit, harvested from the best soils in Bas Armagnac; organic farming practices; slow and low distillation, and aging in a unique combination of Gascon and Limousin oak.
