Delamain XO Single Vineyard Collection Ambleville Cognac
Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
A Single Cask, Single Estate XO Cognac from Ambleville in the Premier Cru
Originating from a single vineyard located on a geological rift in the village of Ambleville, the Delamain Single Vineyard Collection Ambleville Old Cognac is something of a Premier Cru treasure. As an XO Cognac, it has been aged for a minimum of 10 years - but we suspect that Delamain ages their Cognacs for far longer.
It has spent many years aging in a single cask in the historic Delamain cellars, making it the truest expression of the Grande Champagne terroir.Delamain only produces Cognac with the finest eaux-de-vie from the Premier Cru, but this beauty is truly exceptional. The cask is a 350-liter old Limousin oak barrel, and was bottled in February 2017. The total yield of this Cognac was 324 bottles.
Dominique Touteau, the Maitre de Chai at Delamain expresses his delight that this Ambleville Old Cognac reflects so much of the terroir. Ambleville is located in the center of the cru, and this Cognac was produced by a well-respected family in the area.
It has been produced with no added sugar, and no added coloring.
How to serve
Enjoy this Cognac neat, but also experiment over ice to explore the depths in flavor.
