I have been sound mastering this years DVD release “Roots & Tweets” at DJ Sebastiens studio the last few days. Seb always has something amazing to share at his house and this year is no exception. I was privilaged to share a glass of 140 year old Congac from Remy Martin two night ago. Wow, what an experience, I don’t think I have ever had a drink of that caliber before. There is a lot of history in a bottle that old and it was a real pleasure to sip. The flavor and nose was truly amazing, hard to put into words.
Here are some words I found on the web describing this vintage drink.
With three centuries of Cognac making under its belt, the Rémy Martin family certainly has perfected the art, and nowhere is this more clear than with its top-of-the-line offering, Louis XIII de Rémy Martin.
“Louis XIII is not a Cognac,” they say at Rémy. “Put simply, it’s a moment.” Why is it a moment? Figure this: each bottle is a blend of 1,200 Cognacs, ranging from 40 to 100 years old, across three generations of Cellar Masters, resulting from the combined labor of 10,000 people.
Now check this out!
