Remy Martin XO Excellence Champagne Cognac 700ml
A legendary Cognac from the prestigious house of Remy Martin, containing Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie aged between 40 and 100 years and packaged in a gorgeous Baccarat decanter.
Nose: Very floral, with honeysuckle, and sweet, with delicately perfumed fruit – melon and peaches. There is also a hint of flowery honey and a marzipan nuttiness.
Palate: Cinnamon, almonds, peach, orange and orange blossom, and woody spice. The succinct note in my notebook simply says 'like eating twigs and sweet flowers'.
Finish: Delicate grape, sweet oak spice, melon and lingering floral notes.
