REMI LANDIER Limited Edition / Heritage 45%
Cognacs, France / Poitou-charentes, 70cl, Ref: 5082
The aromatic palette of this old Cognac from the Rémi Landier Fins Bois terroir has aroused many questions. Not about the quality, which is unmistakably remarkable, but because it obstinately refuses to choose in which direction it wants to go, leaving it up to the taster to decide. Interestingly, the flavour palette offers a few answers that prove to be quite pertinent.
Profile: the nose is highly perfumed (florals, spices, fruits, herbs) and the palate bittersweet. A perfect match.

Expert Reviews90 points, Serge Valentin sur Whiskyfun.com, 25 octobre 2015
- Appearance : topaz with very subtle amber glints.
- Nose : refined and very fragrant. Which of the flowers (lily, wallflower), fruits (raspberry, prunes), aromatic plants (lime blossom, sage), vanilla and chocolate combinations or spices (coriander, dill) will emerge as the victor? For the moment, none. Thereby demonstrating the remarkable balance of this “Héritage” cognac.
- Palate : quite lively, almost sharp. The attack on the palate evokes liquorice sticks dipped in acacia honey. This sweet and sour relationship is most interesting. The mid-palate offers quince jelly and wild strawberries. Once again, this is a perfect partnership. Little by little, it becomes more vegetal and herbaceous before reverting back to fruity notes (pear, Mirabelle plums).
- Overall : long, voluptuous. Velvety tannins take over the palate, before breaking up into a fine dust of precious wood, cinnamon and ginger. A handful of exotic fruits (passion fruit, persimmon, guava) gives it plenty of energy and character. The retro-nasal olfaction is characterised by pipe tobacco, while the empty glass evokes scents of vine blossom
- The brand
Passionate about the production of cognac for five generations and the product of a family tradition established in the heart of the Fins Bois appellation in 1890, the Landier family produces cognacs from Ugni Blanc grapes in the clay-limestone terroir of Terre de Groie. Distillation on lees is used to preserve the maximum amount of aromas and body. The eaux de vie are then aged in French oak casks from Limousin and Allier. As well as cognac, the family also produces Pineau des Charentes and Charente vin de pays. The Rémi Landier brand was established in 1973 and recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
