Heidsieck Dry Monopole ChampagneA message in a bottle, lost at sea

This special Champagne will be 100 years old in 2007!

During World War One, November 3, 1916, off the coast of Finland, a German submarine sunk the Swedish ketch: Jonkoping. The cargo sank while on its way to St Petersburg, with on board special shipment of 1,000 gallons of Cognac, 17 barrels of Burgundy Wine, 3000 bottles of Heidsieck & Co Monopole 1907 "Gout Americain" dedicated to the Russian Imperial Army. Unfortunately, the Cognac and the barrels of Burgundy wine did not survive the 82 years spent in the sea, but 2500 bottles of Heidsieck & Co Monopole champagne were extraordinarily preserved.

Delamain Le Voyage Grande Champagne Cognac

Spirit Journal Rating 2008 - 5 stars

Delamain Le Voyage Grande Champagne CognacBurnished copper/rusty orange color; impeccable purity. Fine scents of white chocolate, marshmallow, dried apricot, and tropical fruit rule the early inhalations; additional air contact stirs up added aromas of English toffee, butter cream, chocolate covered orange rind, marmalade, and the beginnings of rancio; could easily and happily smell this classic all day. Palate entry is vibrant, woody/resiny, dry to bittersweet, beany, and moderately oily; midpalate is long, lush, and deep, with a taste finale that includes flavors of caramel, treacle, prunes, and very old sherry. Ends elegantly yet forcefully. A gem whose character never fades. [more info...]
