APPEARANCE: Luminous amber colour, tinted with subtle, rich red hues.
NOSE: Mature nose followed by a delicate woody and vanilla aroma, very quickly replaced by notes of ripe fruit, jam and honey.
PALATE: Delectable and rich, this brandy has character. Flavours of gingerbread, candied apricots, dates, figs and nuts have a gentle impact on the palate. The taste is subtly spicy and aromatic.
Created in 1886, St-Rémy is the world’s number-one French brandy.
An exact selection process :
The creation begins with the selection of the highest quality grapes, harvested exclusively in France’s most prestigious wine-growing regions, such as Burgundy, Champagne, Rhône Valley, Languedoc-Roussillon, Loire Valley, Bordeaux and Beaujolais. The unique features of each of these French regions are brought to life in the eaux-de-vie, thereby guaranteeing the character and elegance of St-Rémy.
Traditional distillation :
Distillation takes place in both column and pot stills. The wine is heated until its turns into eaux-de-vie, a stage during which its unique flavours are revealed. Only the heart of the distillation is carefully selected to obtain the finest and smoothest eaux-de-vie.
The long ageing process and the art of blending :
St-Rémy eaux-de-vie are aged exclusively in small French oak barrels. The Master Blender then demonstrates all her expertise in blending them, capturing their unique, mellow and well-rounded aromas.
