  • 27/04/2019
  • £10

Join multi-award-winning Master Chocolatier Marc Demarquette to discover an inimitable Cognac and chocolate experience which will tantalise your senses like never before, only at Cognac Show.


Bloomsbury House, 2-3 Bloomsbury Way, London, WC1A 2RL


In this limited-edition tasting, discover and enjoy the delicious levels of complexity of both chocolates crafted by multi-award-winning Master Chocolatier Marc Demarquette married with the unique and exquisitely fine Delamain Cognacs.

Guided by Marc Demarquette himself, understand the intricacies of pairing and discover the flavours that arise from matching the right chocolate with the right Cognac. Each chocolate has been expertly crafted by Marc, specifically for each Delamain Cognac, to bring you a labyrinth of flavours. Learn about the complexities of both Cognac and chocolate production and gain insight on each craft, then finish the taste sensation with Delamain 1973. 

Not available to sample elsewhere at the show, Delamain vintage 1973, bottled in 2013, is an exceptional 40 year old single-cask Cognac. The unique characteristics of the 1973 reflect its terroir of origin (Saint-Même), the year of its harvest (1973) and the conditions in which it was aged within the Delamain cellars in Jarnac. The 1973 vintage is a benchmark in terms of age and quality, with its noble nose of dry fruits, under wood and rancio, its fruity palate and lingering finish. Each numbered, only 396 bottles produced – very limited quantities remain.

The Chocolate Pairings: 

  • Delamain Pale & Dry XO with Earl Grey
  • Delamain Vesper XO with Plain Dark
  • Delamain Le Très Vénéré with Fennel & Wild Honey
  • Delamain Vintage 1973
