With an incredibly old family tradition, Delamain (et Cie) makes for an exciting cognac house with roots dating back to the early 1600s! The family tree couldn't be more complicated, and yet the Delamain brand has managed to survive since its creation in 1762. This is a cognac house that is unapologetic when it comes to quality, selecting only the very best from its suppliers in order to create its own products. With the British aristocracy having influenced the Delamains for generations, this cognac is authentically catered for blue blood!
Three Cognacs of exceptional quality, each the epitome of all that makes the Grande Champagne terroir the premier cru of Cognac.
All three Cognacs, while unique in themselves, share the same delights that a good Cognac posesses. They are full bodied, round, mature, with wonderful rancio that...
The colour is soft golden, the nose rather balanced and full of flower notes, rather light but still spicy. Some hints of wood and sweet rancio. The taste is presented in quite a full, smooth way, intense fruits. The finish is pretty solid.
Tasting review by Delamain:
Eye: Each cask imparts its own color - generally paler and more brilliant than other old Cognacs
Nose: Powerful perfumes, dry grapes, grilled almonds
Palate: Fruity & elegant, wonderful rancio, long & fruity finish
Underwood aromas, dry grapes, grilled...
Tasting notes from Hine Cognac:
Blonde tobacco, lilac, ancient roses and sticks of liquorice follow one after the other like a cavalry. Nothing about this experience is boring and yet harmony reigns supreme.
