Notes: 1950s Remy Martin VSEP


1950s Remy Martin VSEP - 40%


Remy specializes in Fine Champagne production which isn't a specific cru but rather a designation for blending distillate from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. Since 1948, every bottle of Remy has carried this designation. I wasn't able to unearth the distinction between VSOP and VSEP, but my gut is they are fairly interchangeable and indicate a minimum of 4 years aging.


In 1990, Remy merged with Cointreau to form the Remy Cointreau. Their portfolio consists of:

Rémy Martin cognac, Louis XIII cognac, Mount Gay Rum, Cointreau liqueur, METAXA,

Bruichladdich, The Botanist gin, St-Rémy French brandy. Domaine des Hautes Glaces French single malt whisky, and Westland American single malt whiskey.

 

Notes: Nose is overripe and fruit driven. Pear. Vanilla. Tangerine. Blueberry. Light wood. The palate is fat and full (likely some dosage - but doesn't get cloying or sticky). Candied peach rings. Clementine. Pear. Vanilla cream. Little citrus spike into the oak mid-palate. Finish is short and clean.


Pour This For: The oak, body, and light fruit will translate well for sub-100 proof bourbon fans.


Score: 6 (Solid) Very full, soft, and creamy - just shy of flabby. Fairly linear without being boring.
