COLLECTION PLENITUDE

VINTAGE 1988

ORIGIN

This cognac originates from a magnificent parcel in the hilltop hamlet of Bouteville whose historic fortress has guarded the region for a millennium and now keeps watch over some of its very finest Grande Champagne vines. The Bouteville 1988 is a sublime expression of this heart of the heart terroir

CASK

The well-seasoned cask used for ageing this cognac is made from French oak from the Tronçais forest and hold up to to 350L. The use of old, seasoned oak reduces the influence of tannins, and allows the flavour of the vines and the terroir to pass into the cognac, resulting in a cognac of remarkable authenticity and elegance.

CELLAR

For 32 years this wax sealed cask has been maturing in our dedicated vintage cellar, where near perfect levels of humidity and moisture provided ideal ageing conditions for it to slowly evolve. Delamain self imposes the most stringent controls and procedures on the ageing of its vintage cognacs by placing its cellar under strict monitoring and lock and key control by the BNIC Bureau National Interprofessionnel de Cognac) the official cognac industry body.

TASTING NOTES

AROMAS

Apricot, litchi, toasted almonds, a hint of leather and vanilla

TASTE

Initial notes of apricot give way to toasted almonds and rancio. A complex, elegant and delicate cognac

“This vintage 1988 originates from the magnificent vines of Bouteville. I have had the privilege of watching over and guiding this cask to maturity over its 32 years in our vintage cellar. Discover its elegance, rich fruit and nut aromas and the rancio resulting from more than three decades of slow ageing.” Dominique Touteau
