Remy Couillebaud Vieille Réserve Cognac
The Remy Couillebaud Vieille Réserve Cognac is, as with all of the house's Cognacs, created solely from eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois terroir. This delightful old blend is a beautiful deep color, thanks to the aging process, and reveals wonderful woody tones alongside aromas of dried fruits. The rancio is, naturally, well defined making it the perfect product for those fond of well-matured Cognacs and exploring the brand for the first time.
The house of Remy Couillebaud prides itself in the traditional methods of creating its Cognacs. With the in-depth know-how having been handed down over six generations, this is an artisan house of the highest degree. The family have been creating eaux-de-vie from the grape to the bottle since the mid-1800s - and their methods today remain almost identical to that of their forefathers. If Remy Couillebaud is a new Cognac, then the Vieille Réserve is a great place to start.
Presentation of the bottle
Displayed in a traditional style Cognac bottle, Rémy Couillebaud Vieille Reserve Cognac proves that it's what is inside that counts the most. While the presentation appears classic, the glimmering amber color of the Cognac steals the show.
How to enjoy
A well-matured blend like this one should be appreciated with your utmost attention. Ensure the ambience and company is one point before commencing the tasting, then slowly sip Vieille Reserve Cognac neat, from a tulip glass. Alternatively pour over ice to experience the Cognac chilled. Pair with a fine cigar to take the tasting up a notch and to prolong the pleasurable experience even further.
