N.V. Delamain Vesper XO Grande Champagne

If the word Vesper takes you to a moment of deep meditation in the quiet of an undisturbed evening; if it causes you to reflect on what has been and what is coming; if Vesper makes you forget and remember, then in this extremely old Cognac the complexity, the mellowness, the remembrance of oak past have all done their timeless work.

Media Reviews

Jason Wilson

Slightly older than Delamain Pale & Dry, at 30 to 35 years old, this copper-colored XO is even more complex. There’s still orchard fruit, but also beautiful aromas of fresh wildflowers and wet earth. On the palate, it’s richer, rounder and expansive, offering more intense saline and spice notes, but there’s still the delicious note of quince and membrillo at the core, and a finish that goes on forever.
