Perhaps one of the world’s most recognised and famous Cognac brands, Rémy Martin VSOP is the entry level in SA. My rating is 18/25
WHAT THE MAKERS SAY:
Summer fruits, especially ripe apricots and peaches. Wild flowers – violets.
Peaches, Apricots, Vanilla, with a hint of liquorice
A perfectly balanced blend of ripeness
Dried fruit, minerality, spices
Strong oak, subtle minerality from the Fin Champagne Crus, anise (liquorice) .
Fruit filled, smooth and dry.
Serving suggestions: Neat in a snifter. Or with a few cubes of ice to calm the strength of neat spirit and enhance the mineral undertones.
