Delamain Tres Venerable Grande Champagne Cognac 700ml
Another extraordinary Delamain release, made up of eaux-de-vie that's said to have an average age of 45-50 years (some as old as 55 years) , with the strength brought down from 45% by slowly adding Vieilles Faibles. The label is based on bank notes from the French Revolution.
Slightly musky with balancing sweetness from fruit, vanilla and liquorice. Honeyed rancio, florals, spice and hints of cheese. Very impressive.
