Delamain's vintage Cognacs originate from the Grande Champagne district, the central part and the first growth of the Cognac appellation. These spirits mature more slowly and achieve greater longevity than Cognacs from the surrounding districts, and develop greater finesse and delicacy.

The Grande Champagne 1960 was the first vintage to be secured in Delamain's old vintages cellar; the first bottling was drawn from it at the end of 1992.

The Grande Champagne Cognacs from prior vintages are from casks which have been kept in Delamain's cellars since shortly after their distillation, and the oldest of these have been transferred from cask to glass demijohn to arrest their maturation. This cellar is strictly controlled by the BNIC. Situated in Jarnac, on the banks of the Charente river, it benefits from an ideal degree of hygrometry for the ageing of Cognacs.

These Cognacs are acquired almost without exception from bouilleurs de cru, small growers who vinify the wines from their vineyards and themselves distil the wine into Cognac.

Delamain & Co. is pleased to offer these Cognacs of extraordinary rarity, quality and absolute genuineness.

The bouquet is characterised by undergrowth and chocolate notes, enhanced by apricot and orange aromas.

On the palate, its aromatic complexity and its power are developing into a lingering liquorice and fruity finish.

Producer Information

That declaration of fidelity and faith has been a constant feature of the Delamain family, ever since James Delamain came back from Ireland in 1759 to form a partnership with his father-in-law, Jean-Isaac Ranson, owner of a long-standing exporting firm whose origins date back to the very first beginnings of cognac.
The historical roots of the House of Delamain, still run to this day by the direct descendants of the founder, Patrick Peyrelongue and his cousin Charles Braastad, run deep down into the origins of cognac, such that it
is today one of the oldest names of the region.
The Delamain family boasts amongst its members humanists, scientists and poets alike, such as Jacques Delamain, a writer and great ornithologist, or Robert Delamain, author of "The History of Cognac", a superb book still today considered as a work of reference by scholars and cognac-lovers. The family has remained homogenous and united in the intimacy of a House steeped in memories and traditions handed down by the previous generations. The successive heads of the House of Delamain, open-minded and attentive to the due observance of things, have always master-minded all the crucial operations of the profession : purchasing the eaux-de-vie, ageing, blending, reducing, which explains the extraordinary consistancy of the end product.
In accordance with the original nature of the old Houses of Cognac, Delamain selects and purchases its eaux-de-vie from owners and distillers in the region, with whom it has maintained ties of mutual confidence, often going back decades.
Delamain thus has access to the finest sources of provisioning, exclusively in the terroirs of Grande Champagne, as being the only areas capable of providing a quality matching its stringent requirements.
The House of Delamain has remained faithful to its tradition of craftsmanship. All the preparatory operations are carried out by hand, according to the rules of the art, in compliance with the demands of total quality, in cellars imbued with the heady fragrance of the precious casks.
The Delamain objective is simple : to remain faithful to its tradition and offer cognacs of the very purest and most genuine expression.
Today, the pride and joy of the House of Delamain, constantly seeking to conquer new markets, is the recognition of its know-how and the appreciation of its cognac by leading connoisseurs all over the world.
