PLÉIADE
BY DELAMAIN
For more than two centuries, the House of Delamain has
established itself as the guardian of time-honoured cognacs.
PLÉIADE Delamain introduces a range of limited-edition
treasures from its historic cellars.

Treasures of
Grande Champagne

The Delamain “Pléiade” is a cluster of some of our most extraordinary cognacs; gems from across our cellars that have particular merit. Given their rarity, individuality and unblended nature, these are stars which naturally shine outside of our fixed product range. A journey into truly exceptional cognacs.

For the Connoisseur
and Explorer

The Pléaide range is designed to appeal to a new generation of informed and exploring spirits drinkers who are on the lookout for rare and unusual offerings with a compelling history behind the product.

Our aim with Pléiade is to build an honest and lasting relationship upon which a cognac drinker can confidently move to quite different offerings within this exceptional range.

Each collection will be supplemented with new series, according to the availability of each collection.

The cognac explorer will therefore discover the unlimited richness of cognac with one or more collections.

A Personal
Selection

Over a 40 year career as Delamain’s Cellar Master, Dominique Touteau has become intimately attached to and deeply knowledgeable about Delamain’s special eaux-de-vie. They are in many ways his life’s work and stand amongst his proudest achievements. He and they have shared a life and in a sense are one.

Through the Pléiade collection he has chosen to share his intimate understanding of these eaux-de-vie with you; their origins, their cellar journeys, their personalities and their individual stories.

The
Collections

3 collections sharing specific characteristics

Originating from a single harvest, or a single vineyard, and a single cask – thus unblended, but also slowly and patiently reduced, with no sweetener or added colouring, these cognacs are offered in their purest expression.
Produced in limited series, Pleiade is composed of 3 collections, defined by age.

Collection Révélation

The Révélation collection comprises very old cognacs. Several decades in seasoned oak casks are necessary for the eaux-de-vie to reveal their unique personality, and the cognacs we share with you in this collection will have you exploring rare characteristics.

Currently, Révélation is a limited series of Malaville Single Vineyard bottles.

This cognac originates from the superb 20ha parcel of vines we cultivate today. The eau-de-vie, distilled in a small alambic on the propriety, has been aged in one of my favourite cellars. I have personally selected it for its full-bodied fruitiness; its aromas of fresh fig, swirling amongst vanilla, soft leather and spices.

This 40 year-old vintage has a special significance for me, it arrived at Delamain the same year I did. For over four decades I have guided its evolution with special fondness. I am proud to bring you this cognac, whose autumnal aromas make it a cognac of undeniable individuality and character.

“Harvested in 1965, this cognac is part of the very fabric of who we are. It has held pride of place in the "Grand Chai", unmoved, for its entire period of ageing. At 50 years it reached its unique apogee, and was transferred to a 30L dame-jeanne, locking in time its magnificent aromas of apricot, candied quince and walnut.”
