A Culinary Feather in Franschhoek's Cap
At the occasion of the glamorous 71st Cannes Film Festival, Rémy Martin, the official supplier to the festival for the 15th year in a row, unveiled its latest XO limited edition. Inspired by the gleaming light-bulb letters of ancient movie theatres, the bottle is highlighted by a multitude of golden dots representing the various eaux-de-vie that make up this complex cognac. It also creates a visually modern style, very similar to pixels or mosaic art. The elegant black-and-gold box that the bottle is presented in glorifies the radiance of the XO decanter. Opulent, Radiant, Refined In 1981 Cellar Master André Giraud crafted an XO that would bring out all the complexity and excellence of this Cognac Fine Champagne. The iconic Rémy Martin XO, produced with up to 400 aged eaux-devie, bears the unmistakable signature of the House’s cellar master.
The intensity of the amber hue suggests a radiant taste, an exceptional softness, and a sophisticated beauty, and its aromas of white flowers, accents of plums, figs and candied oranges resonate with the notes of cinnamon and freshly grated hazelnuts. The distinguished opulence, the inimitable texture, and the warm authenticity of Rémy Martin XO make it far more than just a cognac. About Rémy Martin Founded in 1724, Rémy Martin is the embodiment of Cognac Fine Champagne. Its cognacs – the fruit of the prestigious regions of Grande and Petite Champagne – hold outstanding ageing potential. The exclusive selection of grapes that make up the heart and soul of cognac, combined with the expertise of the cellar masters, create a one-of-a-kind aromatic intensity. For over 300 years the House has pursued one ambition: to reveal the talents of nature and humankind through its quest to capture the very heart of cognac.
