Rémy Martin VSOP
Remy Martin VSOP is by many (including myself) regarded as the international standard for VSOP cognacs. This cognac is soft and has a refined taste, this cognac is the only cognac I would recommend for starting cognac drinkers. Therefore this is the first review I will write on CognacFans.com. This Fine Champagne Cognac contains grapes from the Grande and Petite Champagne region, with about 55% of the eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne and the rest from Petite Champagne.
The Remy Martin VSOP is a 4 to 12 year old cognac with an average age of 8 years. I personally think that the design of the bottle is one of the best in its category (VSOP).
A legend says that the matt green bottle was created by the fact that the cognacs were previously less well-filtered. Otherwise some residue in the bottle is shown.
The tasting notes of the Remy Martin VSOP are:
The color: sparkling gold.
The scent: vanilla, honey, flowers, fruits.
The taste: real Fine Champagne, warm but not overpowering, full scent of ripe fruit and vanilla. Little wood flavor.
The after-taste: balanced but short in length.
The origin: 55% Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne 45%.
The age: 4 to 12 year old cognac with an average age of 8 years.
The price: about $40, —
