ABV 40.0%

Delamain Tres Venerable Grande Champagne Cognac is blended from a range of Cognacs averaging 45 to 50 years of age, which have been reduced by natural evaporation to approximately 45 percent alcohol by volume. It is brought to 40 percent consumption strength by the gradual addition of 'vieilles faibles, 'very old, weak Grande Champagne Cognacs showing a natural alcohol content of 15 percent. The unusual label design is taken from a French Revolutionary bank note.

Introduced in 1976, this rare Cognac inspires the respect and reverence its name, and age, suggest. Brilliant deep topaz in colour with gold highlights, its profound, complex bouquet reveals subtle nuances of dried fruits, liquorice and mellowed oak. An initial freshness and delicacy on the palate unfold into a rich, palette of mature flavours underscored by sophisticated 'rancio', notes of fruitcake and cheese.

A Cognac of perfect balance with exceptional length on the finish. Extraordinary delicacy in a rich, full flavoured cognac. Floral spice aromas give way to complex scents of underwood, raisins, vanilla, liquorice and honey. Remarkable complexity and all the subtlety of a truly great cognac.

Très Vénérable was named for its venerable status, having reached the maximum age at which cognac can improve.

Country Of Origin: France

Based in Jarnac, France, Delamain is one of the oldest and last family-owned and run houses in Cognac. It was established in 1759 by James Delamain, who was born in Dublin, Ireland.  After his death in May 1800 the firm fell apart, but in 1924 his grandsons Anne-Phililippe Delamain and his cousins of the Roullet family re-established the name as Roullet & Delamain as a producer of Cognac.  The company is still run by direct family descendents today, Charles Braastad-Delamain and his cousin, Patrick Peyrelongue.

The house of Delamain is strongly attached to its tradition of craftsmanship. It specialises in ageing and maturing high quality Cognacs exclusively from the Grande Champagne region. The Cognacs are meticulously selected from individual producers, many of whom have traded with the Delamain House for generations. Immense care is taken to maintain the quality of the Cognacs through the ageing process, and the Cognacs are left to mature in cask until each reaches perfection. They are then blended and married to create a product that expresses the Delamain style.
