Delamain Vintage 1989 Grande Champagne Cognac: Aromatic brilliance
Delamain have excelled themselves with this 1989 Vintage from the premier cru of Grande Champagne. Only 420 bottles of this masterpiece will ever be produced—a Cognac that truly showcases the delicious aromatic and flavorsome qualities of a single vineyard in the tiny hamlet of Marancheville, in the heart of this, the finest of all terroirs. Three decades of history is found in every bottle, and, as one would expect, this offers a taste experience that those fortunate enough to enjoy will memorize for life.
Full, beautifully round, and boasting exceptional tones of mature fruits and spices, it’s a Cognac to be truly savored—one for an occasion or to sip in the company of someone very special. The hallowed taste of rancio is exceptional, lasting long after the last drops of pure nectar have been swallowed.
Delamain Cognac has roots that can be traced to the 1600’s, and this impressive length of knowledge, history, and savoir-faire is tantamount to the brilliance of their high-end Cognac creations. This vintage 1989 Grande Champagne bottle is a wonderful example of quite how incredible a Cognac can be.
Presentation of the Bottle
As always, Delamain embraces simplicity of presentation—preferring, instead, to let the liquid gold within take center stage. That’s not to say that the bottle isn’t impressive in its own right. Great care has been taken over the labeling and a subtle but strategic nod to contemporary style. It is, quite simply, a bottle that exudes the ultimate in quality.
How to enjoy
A Cognac that’s over three decades in the making certainly demands to be taken seriously. Enjoy the roller coaster sensory journey of tasting in its purity—neat—and when you have the time to truly appreciate its very many different aromatic and flavor levels.
