The Blanche is a new A.O.C. (Appellation d'Origine Controlee) 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.
- 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.
How to serve: 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, keylime pie, tart tatin and lemon sabayon.- In a variety of cocktails ; it usually maries well with citrus flavors, red berries, kiwi and also chocolate.
