Rémi Landier XO Joel Robuchon Sélection Cognac
Cognac XO Joël Robuchon Sélection has been developed with the greatest respect for AOC Cognac and Rémi Landier expertise which dates back to 1890. It is the fruit of the work of the vineyard, of a traditional double distillation in small Charentais copper stills, long aging in French oak barrels and a blend of rare and exceptional eaux-de-vie.
Remi Landier and his sons set up their family-run Cognac brand in 1973, upon realizing the uniqueness of the Fins Bois terroir and the eaux-de-vie that it produces. As distillers for some of Cognac’s largest trading houses, they only produce a small quantity under their own label which is today fronted by Jean-Yves Landier and his daughter Geraldine, fourth and fifth generation of producers. Offering a full range of Cognacs from VS to XO as well as rare and limited editions, this tight-knit business not only renders the use of quality and expertise when it comes to Cognac but the brand’s Pineaux des Charentes also benefits from an excellent reputation.
Presentation of the bottle
Contained within a bold and striking decanter, Cognac XO Joël Robuchon Sélection offers a contemporary twist on the classic Cognac bottle. With the brand label embossed onto the glassware itself in white, it is the black label and foliage on the neck of the bottle that stand out in contrast. The swirly font style hones in on, not only the product’s roots, but the heritage of the Cognac industry itself too. A beautifully presented Cognac, worthy of its place in any spirits collection and an ideal gift to the connoisseur not yet familiar with this underrated Cognac house.
How to enjoy
This sweet, fruity and floral XO Cognac with beautiful honeyed and spicy notes, is ideal as an accompaniment to shellfish, blue cheeses and desserts. Serve it neat at room temperature to experience the Cognac in its purest form or on the rocks to alter the tasting experience slightly.
