About this SPIRIT
Nismes-Delclou is the oldest firm producing Armagnac, founded in 1832 by Baron Hausmann, then Chief Commissioner of Police in Paris. It has since remained in the hands of the same family. Today, Florence Castarede, the sixth generation continues the tradition of producing wonderfully rich, perfumed and smooth Armagnacs which are amongst the finest in the region.
The house of Castarede enjoys an enviable reputation for holding impressive stock of old vintages, going back to 1881.
Only the finest fruit from the Bas Armagnac region is used and the eaux-de-vie are matured slowly in wooden casks and demejans in two different locations: In the old Nismes-Delclou cellars by the Baise river at the Pont de Bordes in Lavardac and in Château Maniban at Mauleon d'Armagnac.
This old magnificent castle of Maniban was built in the 16th century, and is a classified historical monument. The estate is surrounded by vineyards planted with Folle Blanche (aka Piquepoul), Colombard, and Ugni Blanc (Saint-Emilion).

A very fruity bouquet of fresh and lively orange aromas leaps from this 1974 Armagnac. It has a complex, exotic nose but no coarseness or unwelcome alcohol heat. There are light, elegant, fruity flavours and a refreshing quality: perfect for perking up the palate after a heavy meal. This is a fine digestif with an interesting, spicy, almost mineral aftertaste.
J. Nismes-Delclou is the oldest firm producing Armagnac, having been established in 1832 by Baron Hausmann, then Chief Commissioner of Police in Paris. It boasts an exceptional collection of vintage Armagnacs, with more than forty authenticated vintages - the oldest dating from 1881 - crafted from the best products of the Bas Armagnac region and matured in cellars more than a hundred years old. Long ageing in old casks has made this into an incredibly velvety Armagnac, full of seductive notes of violets and cinammon, caramel and dried stone fruits. This prestigious Armagnac makes an ideal gift for someone born in 1974 and a superb anniversary gift.
