Ultra-Rare Single Barrel, Single Vineyard Cognac

 

The latest BI Exclusive, Delamain and Bordeaux Index are offering a single cask of old Cognac from Ambleville, one of the best parts of Grande Champagne. 

Ambleville Vineyards
Situated five miles south of Segonzac, the small village of Ambleville is itself divided into several smaller hamlets on hilly slopes. This Cognac comes from the highest point (95m) of Ambleville.

La Maison du Prieur Cellar
Delamain’s greatest cellars are positioned around Jarnac's church. In the basement of what was the priory in the 13th Century is a superb vaulted crypt with an old Charentais pot still. The underground crypt of the Priory brings the perfect humidity level to the room upstairs. This small “chai” has massive chalky walls, which have become darkened with the famous Torula, the fungus which feeds itself from the Cognac “angel’s share”. The south-facing façade from the 13th Century has two small gothic windows that bring a dim light and keep the temperature cool in summer. This is where our Ambleville cask is hidden.

We at BI have selected this tremendously old Grande Champagne Cognac (unofficially, it’s at least 35 years old, but we’re not allowed to mention that), much older than the law requires to be called XO.  This ultra-rare bottling of Delamain Cognac is tailor-made for us. This means we can even add your name onto the front label under the bottle number.

Delamain Ambleville, Single Barrel, Single Vineyard
With all the delicacy of a fully matured old Grande Champagne Cognac the initial notes of quinces and candied fruits give way to layers of tobacco and soft leather followed by a deep textural sense of matured fruits mixed with walnuts on the palate. A truly extraordinary Cognac.
