Radiance and Refinement in Rémy Martin’s XO Glass Pack
Striding to the forefront of popular knowledge about Cognac in recent years has been Rémy Martin, touted by rappers and actors alike as the best of the best. Now, their famous XO variety comes in a sophisticated glass pack, with two Cognac glasses included with the iconic bottle.
The Rémy Martin XO was created in 1981 by Cellar Master André Giraud, who blended up to 400 different eaux-de-vie from the prime Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne regions to reach the perfect aromatic complexity.
The house itself has been around for almost 300 years, with Rémy Martin producing beautiful brandies since 1724. Its characteristic black logo bearing an image of a centaur is unmistakable, and the house is motivated by a centuries-long mission to ‘capture the heart of Cognac.’
On the nose, the Rémy Martin XO promises aromas of late summer fruit and rich floral notes of jasmine and other white flowers. Opulent on the palate, mature flavors of juicy plums and candied oranges emerge, and hints of hazelnuts and cinnamon complete the picture to round out a flavorful expression full of clarity. In terms of body, Rémy Martin XO comes off rich, velvety and lingering. Best taken straight, at room temperature or on ice, Cognac connaisseurs will soon understand the merit and reputation of this Fine Champagne offering.
This XO’s decadent quality has not gone unnoticed; at the UK Spirits Business Cognac Masters in 2010 it won a gold medal, and again took home gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014.
With this special 2018 glass pack, the Rémy Martin XO finds itself wrapped in the perfect package to offer as a gift. Newcomers to the world of Cognac can find themselves delighted with such a top-tier discovery, while connaisseurs and propagators can enjoy it in a new way.
