1724 marked the beginning of Rémy Martin, the only major cognac house to have been founded by a winegrower. Rémy Martin has been a family business for three centuries, run by two families who share the same values: the Rémy Martin and the Heriard Dubreuil families. Above all, Rémy Martin is a company where savoir-faire, family land, experience and formulas have been passed down from one generation to the next. It is a company driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, solidarity and long-term vision, both within the company and in relations with external partners. To be part of Rémy Martin is to be part of a family.
Rémy Martin XO is the signature of their Cellar Master who with his expertise blends up to 400 different eaux-de-vie. His art of blending allows him to express the full aromatic complexity of this XO Cognac Fine Champagne. In 1981, Cellar Master André Giraud set out to create an XO that would express the excellence of the Cognac Fine Champagne. Rémy Martin XO is composed of eaux-de-vie coming exclusively from the highest-quality vineyards of Cognac, the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. Such eaux-de-vie offer an exceptional ageing potential and are known as Cognac Fine Champagne.
The nose of Rémy Martin XO includes a wide spectrum of aromas of late summer fruit, combined with rich floral notes of white flowers such as jasmine. The taste is the perfect expression of Fine Champagne opulence on the palate with mature flavours of juicy plums and candied oranges, with a hint of hazelnuts and cinnamon. This cognac has a velvety, rich, and lingering character.
