Delamain Extra de Grande Champagne (700ml)


The bouquet is a model of aromatic elegance with subtle aromas of oak, bacon, oak, toffee, baked pear, baked banana and honey. The palate entry finds harmonious, completely integrated tastes of honey, oak, grapes and spice; at midpalate tastes of bacon fat, pork rind and oaky vanillin are added. A masterpiece.- WE96

The Winery

Delamain is one of the oldest houses in Cognac, founded in 1824. It sources brandy from partner distillers in the top-rated Grande Champagne zone to mature for an extended period of time – unlike other houses, Delamain does not produce a VS or VSOP Cognac. All of the brandy is tasted to make sure it is suitable before Delamain takes it on, although the house has developed long-term relationships with distillers.

The Cognacs are aged in old French oak barrels in cellars on the banks of the Charente, where the temperature and humidity is well-suited to Cognac maturation. After blending, the products spend a further two years in oak to marry together. Rather than using pure water to reduce the final product down to the final alcohol level, Delamain uses a combination of old brandy and water at 15 percent abv, to retain control of the process.

The Delamain range includes a pair of XO Cognacs and several other extra-aged labels. Small batches of vintage Cognac are also offered, while Réserve de la Famille is a single-barrel, single-estate release.-Wine Searcher
