Ancestral, Cognac Grande Champagne, Delamain
Until recently, this Cognac was the Cognac of choice that the Delamain family reserved for themselves, and for their guests. It is an unblended, single estate, single cask Cognac ? a unique find in the world of Cognacs. This Cognac has benefitted from maximum barrel ageing, and with natural reduction which has dropped to 43% alcohol. From one cask to another, the Cognac changes, but is always a Cognac of unmatched purity. The colour is the rich amber colour of these old Cognac. In general, the bouquet is powerful and long with floral notes, a rarity in older Cognacs. The palate is round and reveals the maturity of the rich fruit.
