Rémy Martin Mature Cask Finish VSOP is a perfect addition to the suite of Rémy Martin premium cognacs. Rémy Martin VSOP Mature Cask Finish is created from eaux-de-vie from the highest-quality vineyards of Cognac, the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. Such eaux-de-vie offer an exceptional aging potential and are known as Cognac Fine Champagne. VSOP - Very Special Old Pale indicates that the cognac consists of a blend in which contributions are aged between 4-12 years.
The first VSOP fine champagne was created in 1927, under the guidance of Cellar Master André Renaud — a truly visionary and audacious decision. This prestigious appellation would be officially recognized 11 years later as an AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée - a specific growing area protected by French law).
The Mature Cask Finish occurs during an additional year of ageing in 20 year old French Limousin oak casks. Expect dominant notes of vanilla thanks to longer aging in French Limousin oak barrels, followed by ripe apricot, baked apple, and an elegant floral note. A perfect harmony between the firm character of ripe fruit and subtle notes of liquorice, offers great complexity of elegant and powerful taste. The body is well-balanced, structured, and multi-layered. The roundness and fruity notes are enhanced by a one-year finishing period in small oak casks of over 20 years of age.
Rémy Martin VSOP Mature Cask Finish is extremely versatile, meaning it can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, frozen, or in cocktails. Try drinking with ginger ale or in a classic cocktail such as the Brandy Crusta or the French Mojito. Check out more Recipes on our blog.
