1977 Armagnac, J. Nismes-Delclou

Description

The 1977 Armagnac’s brassy, moderate colour belies a bouquet with a fine range of aromas that includes intense crystallised fruit, as well as just the right amount of spice. The taste is mellow, yet well developed, with an emphasis on plum and a subtle woodiness. 

Established in 1832 by Baron Hausmann, J. Nismes-Delclou is Armagnac’s oldest producer. The distillery boasts an exceptional collection of vintage Armagnacs stretching back to 1881. It sources the finest wine from Bas Armagnac, before distilling and ageing the resulting spirits in cask in its 100-year-old cellars. With time, these Armagnacs develop an incredible velveteen texture, as well as complex and seductive aromatics reminiscent of florals, sweet spice, caramel and dried stone-fruit.

About this SPIRIT

Nismes-Delclou

Nismes-Delclou

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).
