A celebration of cellars, the Remy Martin Cellar Selection No. 28 Cognac
The Cellar Selection by Remy Martin is a celebration of the aromatic diversity produced by the various cellars at the Domaine de Merpins estate in Cognac, with each selection representing the qualities of one cellar on site.
Launched in 2013 by Pierrette Trichet, the goal was to showcase each cellar’s individual characteristics, and to highlight the specific aromatic notes provided by their unique atmosphere. This particular XO is a Fine Champagne blend, bringing together the finest parts of the Petite and Grande Champagne terroirs.
Cellar No 28 is a particularly special one, as it stores some of the oldest casks on the estate, is positioned deep underground for optimum aging conditions and provides plenty of humidity and the perfect maturation temperature. The resulting Cognac is silky, smooth with intense notes of candied fruits. Each eaux-de-vie has been carefully selected for its flavor profile, ensuring they present the same aromas and taste to provide the perfect match. This selection results in a richer and more defined drinking experience for the Cognac connoisseur lucky enough to enjoy its harmonious blend.
A delightfully rich and fruity Cognac like this lends itself well to being drunk neat, in a classic snifter, perhaps hand-warmed to release the intense, juicy aromas. If you add a little ice, you’ll be able to recognize subtle notes of beeswax, leather and clove.
The glorious glass decanter has been cut like an expensive diamond, its multiple facets beaming like rays of sunshine, superbly encapsulating the sheer variety of floral and spicy flavors that are stored within.
Just like the Cellar No 28 Cognac is housed, the bottle boasts luxurious velvety textures that place this Fine Champagne blend firmly in the realm of the refined, where expert craftsmanship and glasswork meet the world of high-end Cognac. Very similar to the Excellence and Centaure de Diamant decanters, this exquisite carafe is a beautiful edition to your collection with its golden features.
The decanter equally comes with a gold and black cardboard case for storage or gifting purposes. It’s a bold bottle that can take pride place on display in your home, a true talking point for any connoisseur.
