The Delord family has been making Armagnac since 1893. Prosper Delord married Marie Duffau in 1925 and the family has continued to make Armagnac under both family names. Today the fourth generation of the family distills and blends Bas Armagnac from all four traditional Armagnac grape varieties: Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Baco, and Folle-Blanche just as their great-grandfather did.
Duffau is renowned for its old techniques. A particularly slow single distillation process at low temperature is used allowing more flavor and character to remain in the spirit. A small portion of their Armagnac is aged in the traditional Gascon oak giving darker color and tannins. No pesticides or fertilizers are used in the Duffau vineyards.Duffau's Napoleon is made from brandies that have been aged for a minimum of six years. It has flavors of cocoa, orange rind, cake batter, and vanilla. Soft tannins on the finish and a touch of rancio to come. A stunning example of a traditional Armagnac. (from Marie Duffau)
