Tasting review

Eye: Dark amber. 

Nose: A rather smooth XO, some rich aromas of jasmine, a velvet structure, fruity candy notes.

Palate: The heart is dominated by fig, and full prune, on the palate cinnamon and brioche. The finish lasts for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Description

An XO Fine Champagne blend from Remy Martin

The purpose of this fine XO was to pay tribute to the sheer excellence of eaux-de-vie in the Fine Champagne terroirs of the Cognac region. Cellar Master Andre Giraud assembled the Remy Martin XO Cognac in 1981 showcasing the wonders of the rich, long and luxurious aromas and flavors that arise from the Petite and Grande Champagne crus. Approximately 85% of this Cognac is made up of eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne, which is revered in the region due to the unique chalkiness of the soil, and 15% from the Petite Champagne. The composition makes for very fine Cognacs that have great length and an exquisite rancio. As one of the most iconic Extra Old Cognacs, it is made up of over 400 eaux-de-vie. Such a careful assemblage indicates the highly complex aromatic structure, that can be appreciated with many different layers. As an Extra Old Cognac, some of the eaux-de-vie have been aged for over 37 years. It is a truly decadent Cognac, which is smooth on the palate, fruity and mellow tasting. An epitome for XO mastery of the Fine Champagne cru.

Remy Martin, Cognac house

Remy Martin are one of the most famous and well esteemed Cognac houses in the world, and have been the face of a number of high profile events. In fact, just last year, Remy Martin were named as the official supplier to the Cannes Film Festival, for which they released a XO Cognac Limited Edition. 

How to enjoy the XO by Remy Martin 700ml

Enjoy the Remy Martin XO straight, at room temperature or even on ice. You will be delighted to open your drinks cabinet to this iconic decanter. Fanned out in the shape of a luxurious mandala, it oozes opulence.

Remy Martin XO Awards

Rémy Martin XO won gold at the 2010 Spirits Business Cognac Masters (UK) and cinched a gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014.

Marvelous! One of the best I've tasted.

Starting with the nose: it is very attractive and inviting. Very complex and intriguing. Hints of hazelnuts and fruits, On the palate is very round and has hints of nutmeg, honey, and a general "fruity" character. The finish is exceptional with a long and satisfying aftertaste. Nutty, with vanilla and not too much oak. I like this style of Cognac better than many others.

Remy Martin XO review

I must say the nose is pretty intense, fruity & nutty - I really like the palate, very complex and rich in dark fruits. The after taste has a slight punch! Given it's a top4 cognac it's of course more expensive than other XOs that are less known. I rated this review in a blind tasting compared to other XOs.

Hey everyone. I got a 70cl bottle of this cognac for sale. It's a very old vintage bottle owned by my family for over 20 years. The packaging and the bottle are all old-style, different from the ones you can see today. It's all in perfect condition. I have pictures of them. Please contact me if you're interested.

remy martin xo for sale $100 a bottle

Puma Bearclan 2013-01-07

This cognac is at the top of my price range. I have no complaints and enjoy it very much. It actually seems a bit heavy sometimes so I don't drink it too frequently, but I usually have a bottle on hand.Everything about this cognac is as it should be: excellent complexity in bouquet, in the mouth, and in the finish. Heady and floral top notes, rich base notes, and a very smooth sip.

Remy Martin XO is an excellent Cognac. I drink it more often then other Cognacs and the cost here in Texas and I paid around 130.00 USD at our local liquor store.

just bought 8 bottle of 13 year Remy Martin XO, i feel very special

joe 2012-02-01

Tesseron better then this XO in taste a poster here says?NO WAY.I have tried Tesseron 53 as well as own a full bottle of Tesseron 29!The smell, complexity, balance and taste of Remy XO blows them both away.it does need about 30 min to breath, allow the alcohol to disperse.(Though Tesseron 53 though is better then 29, which I would have understood before buying the 29)I do find that -Remy Premier Cru- is a SUPERIOR product over the regular Remy Martin XO Excellance. Less woody, sweeter, lighter in color and is simply just that much better, and my COGNAC of choice after buying tons of other brands! This Cognac unlike say remy extra or Louie, needs more time to breath and is not the same in quality but closer then you would imagine!!

Ihor 2012-01-17

Besides our great mountains and great weather, this excellent cognac can be purchased in Colorado for about $100!

Norman 2012-01-08

Got a bottle of Remy Martin XO special last year as a gift from a dear friend.Ser# L22465. I opened it and had some. I went to have a snifter this evening and the cork collapsed. Fortunately I own a strainer and could get liquid without the cork particles.Should not happen with a product as expensive as this.There is no access to the firm on this site that I could find. They need to be told and I need to get to question them about a bottle I just got for my son-in-law.Lousy product. Good cognac.

Jairo Todd 2011-12-11

For 160 euros I wouldn't buy this cognac, you just overpay for the brand.. and it's not necessarily a good XO in my eyes. Better go with a mid sized producer such as Paul Giraud or Tesseron. That's just better value for money.
