Description:
100% Grande Champagne.

A blend of various old Grande Champagne cognacs. Each cognac is aged separately during many long years owing to their origin and then the blend itself, made at the end of the ageing period, is aged for two years more (marriage).

Matured in well seasoned Limousin oak casks (350L) and cellared in old cellars near the river, more humid than dry.

The blend at natural strength (around 50% vol.) is very slowly broken down at 40% with weak old Grande Champagne at 15% which enriches the blend.

A style of delicacy, length, fruitiness and mellowness, a bouquet of power of the perfumes and a length of the fragrance. Floral scents, lingering aftertaste of vanilla (rancio).
Mellowness, roundness, age. Intense fruitiness.

A colour of extremely clear and bright, brilliant and velvety gold.

"Spirits Business Master 2010" Pale & Dry, "Pale" because it is much paler than other cognacs of this age due to the natural pale colour of the cognacs used in the blend which are all matured in old casks and
"Dry" because it has only its natural sweetness.

"Delamain is one of the last family-owned Cognac houses. This is a beautiful old Cognac made using the best eau-de-vie from the Grande Champagne region - powerful, mellow and subtle, all at the same time. A heroic after-dinner treat." Matthew Jukes Daily Mail 14 June 2008.

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.
