Rémy Martin XO Excellence
Rémy Martin XO Excellence has an global reputation for its rich flavor and great harmony, with a rich bouquet of flowers.
This XO is composed of 85% Grande Champagne and 15% of Petite Champagne, the blend contains Cognacs between 10 and 37 years old.
The Rémy Martin XO Excellence comes in a beautiful carafe with a heavy stopper, as we like them most!
Although, I often recommend people to look around for buying a bottle of XO cognac. This XO is definitely not bad but you pay an extra for the brand name. (+ €$40, -)
