Once poured and enjoyed, the beverage illuminates the palate with a burst of exquisite and refined notes, while the intense amber hue suggests a radiant taste. The taste is radiant and sophisticated, while the aromas call to mind white flowers, accents of fruits like plums, figs, and candied oranges, as well as cinnamon and freshly grounded hazelnuts.

Rémy Martin has been an official supplier for the Cannes Film Festival for 15 years. Here’s a closer look at the Limited Edition XO, which was unveiled under Cannes’ glittering lights.
With its elegant black and gold box that’s adorned with a multitude of golden dots, the Rémy Martin Limited Edition XO Cannes calls to mind the classic gleaming signs of old movie theaters. What’s more, the design reintroduces the iconic Rémy Martin Centaur in a modern visual style that’s similar to mosaic art, while the color scheme elevates the grandiosity of XO decanter further.
How to Properly Enjoy the Rémy Martin Limited Edition XO Cannes
This quality liquor is best enjoyed straight, allowing you to fully appreciate its rich, spiced flavor. Here are 5 tips on how to properly drink cognac.
1.Choose an older variety, like VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) or XO (Extra Old) to enjoy the complexity of flavor.
2.Use the right glass that will help warm the cognac and funnel the rich aroma. The best types include a tulip glass, a balloon glass, and a stemless wobble glass.
3.Warm the cognac by holding the glass in the palm of your hand. Your body heat will slowly warm it up, which elevates the flavor and intensifies aroma.
4.Smell the cognac and identify the different notes. Swirl the glass gently to “agitate” the cognac and then lift the glass to your nose and breathe in deeply.
5.Finally, taste. Take a small sip, hold it and move it around your mouth to appreciate the various flavors, and then swallow. Continue drinking one sip at a time and enjoy.
