Delamain Cognac Pléiade Collection Apogee 1965
Bottled in July 2020
44 % vol.
The Verrières of 1965 represents an important year in Delamain’s history; it is the epitome of what can be achieved with the best water up to maximum maturity.
This extraordinary barrel has remained in the same corner of the cellar, bene- fiting from changes in temperature and airflow year after year, evolving into a Cognac of sublime intensity and richness.
AGING: in our cellars since February 1966. He was selected by Jean Delamain, director of the Maison and renowned botanist.
BOTTLE: Aged for 50 years in a 350-liter French oak barrel. After reaching its peak, the Cognac was transferred to a Dame Jeanne de 30L in 2015 to preserve its unique organoleptic characteristics.

On the nose, soft notes of spice and orange marmalade marry into a consistent taste reminiscent of nuts, apricot, and quince.
