Rich and spicy aromas of dried figs, cinnamon, and spice cake. The flavor is dry and spiced with a grainy texture and lots of woodsy flavor. Herbs and dried fruit flavors emerge toward the end and deep spice resonates throughout.
In my opinion closer to the taste of XO (which I also prefer) but closer to the price of VSOP. Now my go to cognac. Smooth & delicious.
Why would anyone use a fine cognac in any kind of mix I perfer remi xo
Pricing is more in line with VSOP. How does it compareto that?
Nose: Generous notes of plum and fig marmalade rounded out by intense oaky notes of toffee and toasted breadTaste: Mellowness of butterscotch, baked spices, with hints of dark chocolateBody: Exceptionally rounded with a creamy aftertaste
Wine Maker Notes
In 1965, the first contracts between winegrowers and distillers from Grande Champagne & Petite Champagne were signed with Rémy Martin, forming the Alliance Fine Champagne. Only 17% of the cognac shipped from the region is legally recognized as Fine Champagne Cognac (Source: BNIC shipments 2004) and 80% of all Fine Champagne Cognac shipped from the region is produced by Rémy Martin. The Rémy Martin brand is known for its distinctive centaur logo which is displayed on its wines. This is such that in China, Rémy Martin wine is almost always called "man-headed horse" instead of the actual "Rémy Martin" name.
Enjoyed the world over, Rémy Martin is the epitome of refined French taste and lifestyle.
Since 1724, the House of Rémy Martin has produced premium spirits that consistently appeal to the world’s most discerning connoisseurs. Our cognacs are crafted exclusively with grapes from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne growth areas in France, setting the ultimate standard for quality and craftsmanship.
Remy Martin V eau-de-vie de vin is the first clear spirit crafted by Rémy Martin. Traditional distillation in copper pot stills locks in the characteristics of the Ugni Blanc grapes, from which its made. On the rocks, it is vibrant and intricate. Mixed, it is the soul of any great cocktail.
We carry a profound love of the land, a continuity of family ownership and a passionate commitment to excellence that sets us apart.
The icon of the House of Rémy Martin, the centaur, is the perfect balance of man and nature. So too are our timeless blends, and the balance of nature and human artistry that it takes to create them.
This iconic emblem of the House of Rémy Martin was chosen in 1870 by Paul Émile Rémy Martin and serves as an ambassador for the distinctive character of the brand. It embodies the values of a house built on courage, energy, generosity and audacity. With its feet on the ground as it aims for the stars, the centaur symbolizes our continual quest for excellence. The Cellar Master of the House of Rémy Martin oversees the quality of production from harvest to bottle – a process that releases the natural taste of the grapes. The job of the Cellar Master is an immense responsibility, ensuring that every bottle of Rémy Martin retians the same quality and taste from year to year.
In 2014, Cellar Master Pierette Trichet was succeeded by Baptiste Loiseau. At 34, he joins the quartet that has forged the House of Rémy Martin’s reputation for the last century. The fifth in a trusted line, Baptiste Loiseau was officially inducted as Cellar Master on April 10, 2014 at a ceremony in Cognac.
