Delamain Vintage 1973
Cognac is above all, a product of blending. Indeed, the marriage of Cognacs, from different years and soils, offers a constant quality over the years, for decades even.
It is above all thanks to its mastering of the art of blending that Delamain was able to establish its reputation, for example with Pale and Dry X.O, real signature of the house since 1920.
GROWTH : 100% Grande Champagne : the first growth of Cognac.
ORIGIN : a grower distiller situated at Saint-Même.
SINGLE CASK : unlike the other blended cognacs of our range (Pale & Dry XO,Vesper…) this Vintage cognac is a single cask cognac.
AGE : the year shown on the label of Delamain Vintage Cognac is the year when the
grapes were harvested and legally distillation must take place before the end
of March of the following year. The bottling year is printed on the back label.
CASK : Matured in 350 L well seasoned French oak casks.
CELLAR : one of our old cellars (more humid than dry) on the banks of the Charente
river is specialised in the ageing of single Vintage Cognacs, locked and
controlled by the Authority.
REDUCING PROCESS : The cognac at natural strength (around 50% vol.) is very slowly
reduced at 40%.
STYLE : A Grande Champagne cognac very fruity and elegant.
BOUQUET : Power of the perfumes, length of the fragrance. Underwood aromas, dry
grapes, grilled almonds, rancio.
SAVOUR : Long and fruity.
COLOUR : Each cask imparts its own colour to the cognac : generally paler and more
brilliant than most of the other old cognacs.
AVAILABILITY : Limited amount of bottles.
