Fine Champagne is the category of highest quality in cognac production. With products such as its famous blend Louis XIII, the cognac house with the black centaur logo on its bottles has found international acclaim and saw an exciting history of family feuds, mergers and in recent years a boom in US popular culture. Today, Rémy Martin is part of the Rémy Cointreau group, a powerful company with various luxury products in their range and a large international distribution network.

interestingly to some here: when I did a blind taste test, from the high end remy martin extra which I have always been amazed with, the XO Premire Cru won out.It is lighter in color, and has a better taste!(while not as smooth as the extra, the extra is over the top woody from long years of aging, and simply not as balanced and rounded as the XO Premire Cru)Remy Premire Cru XO when allowed to aerate for about 30-40 min, is the best $$ attainable to many cognacs, from 20 different brands I have purchased over the last few years! Remy Louie VIII is in its own realm, and simply in its own class, bar NONE! Price will be the only limitation to many.

    Yes, Yeozer, you are right. The eau-de-vie composition between the 1st cru and the normal XO is quite different. Not only do they use more eau-de-vie (about 350 different ones) to compose the 1st cru XO, they also use a larger proportion of older ones to reach a higher quality. Also, the 1st cru XO matures longer (up to 37 years) in Limousin oak barrels than the normal XO.

      Rémy Martin first cru cognacs are made from grapes exclusively from the Grande Champagne (not to be mistaken with the Champagne region where the famous French sparkling wine comes from). The Grande Champagne is categorized the best of the six existing areas around the city of Cognac .The "regular" XO, VSOP, etc. cognacs are a blend of grapes from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne (Petite Champagne is the second best area). Just in case you are interested, the Rémy Martin XO Excellence (which is the "regular" XO) is a blend of 85% Grande Champagne Grapes and 15% Petite Champagne grapes, the "regular" VSOP consists of 70% Grande Champagne grapes and 30% Petite Champagne grapes. Even the top of the line products, such as Centaure de Diamant or Louis XIII are blends of grapes from the two forementioned areas.

        Hi Joe, besides price difference, I am pretty sure that the eaux de vie composition is also different between the 1st cru and normal xo. Cheers!
