Half a century of maturation: Deau’s Grande Champagne 1969 Millésime
The Deau house is renowned for its smooth, outstanding quality when it comes to all things Cognac. Located in the heart of the Fins Bois region, Deau boasts many acres of vineyards, creating exquisite eaux-de-vie that produce a great variety of wonderful Cognacs. This particular vintage is not only harvested during the particularly warm summer of 1969, but uses eaux-de-vie exclusively from the Grande Champagne growing region, considered the finest and most sought-after cru of Cognac.
Thanks to the limestone, chalky soil of the region, the eaux-de-vie produced are generally quite light and floral. Deau also houses a superb distillery where the magical alchemy of Cognac production takes place, with state of the art technology blending seamlessly with the tradition, heritage and history of this centuries-old estate. What makes this Cognac so special is not only its provenance from the premier cru - but also its single vintage made exclusively with eaux-de-vie distilled in 1969.
This high-end blend has spent a minimum of 50 years aging in oak casks in the humid cellars of the Deau estate. Little has been written about this unique 1969 millésime from Grande Champagne, although we're sure that if it’s anything like Deau's other gold award-winning blends than it's certainly one to test!

About DEAU Cognac
With a history stretching all the way back to the 17th century, more than 300 years ago, the house of Deau is a true treasure among the artisanal producers of Cognac. Originally the brand grew and distilled all of its eaux-de-vie to be sold to other Cognac houses, however in more recent years, DEAU began producing under its own name. In honour of its family history and traditions, the brand is now making its mark on the Cognac industry with its own personal style and contemporary flair. All of DEAU’s Cognacs combine the mastership of aging and blending with luxurious and sophisticated design. This is the perfect gift for Cognac lovers, especially those with a soft spot for beautiful bottles.
