The Age of Cognac

A Cognac may only be soldy when its youngest eau-de-vie reaches a minimum of two and a half years old, as of the first day of October following the harvest of the grapes.

Only the years of storage in oak barrels count to determine its age.

Once transferred into glass, the Cognac stops maturing . It stands still.
 
V.S        (for Very Special) , also called *** (or Three Stars) is a cognac which youngest eau-de-vie is at least two and a half years old.

V.S.O.P        ( for Very Superior Old Pale) , also called Reserve, is a cognac which youngest eau-de-vie is between four and a half and six and a half years old.

XO  (for Extra Old ) , Napoléon, also called Hors d'âge, is a cognac which youngest eau-de-vie is at least six and a half years old.

Most Cognac houses will use Cognacs much older than those required by law, allowing X.Os to reach a minimum of twenty years old, in order to reveal their very best.

  • Rémy Martin - Louis XIII

    The creation of the Louis XIII cognac in 1874 is in no way a coincidence. It represents the absolute mastery of time, a succession of daring initiatives and an unceasing quest for quality within the House of Rémy Martin. Louis XIII, the prestigious bond between the past and the future, opens – with the passion of three generations of cellar masters – the doors to the great saga of luxury spirits. It illustrates the collective work of men with strong ties to their land and the guardians of secular secrets.Their art will cross the 20th century. It will embrace the future with a steadfast faith and an extraordinary boldness.This art is similar to that of cathedral builders who never saw the completion of their work and used only the best materials for their building.
