The stars align for Chinese New Year 2024 with the arrival of the Rémy Martin Year of the Dragon limited edition collection.
For its 300-year anniversary, the cognac producer celebrates the reunion of the Centaur, the house’s emblem, and the Dragon with Rémy Martin XO, Rémy Martin CLUB and Rémy Martin VSOP released in red and gold limited edition packaging.
You might not know this but when Rémy Martin fulfilled his dream of creating a cognac house, it was the year of the Dragon.
The Chinese New Year collection captures the vitality of the Centaur and Dragon pairing, centred around the classic Chinese idiom 龍馬精神, combining 龍 (dragon), 馬 (horse represented the Centaur) and 精神 (spirit) in an expression of power and a vigorous attitude towards life.
The collection’s bold and mystical designs feature festive gold and red elements, embellished with multicoloured royal dragon scales. The limited edition bottles each have Chinese New Year labels, neck collars and gift boxes, celebrating the positive connection of the past and future.
The Rémy Martin XO decanter takes festive inspiration from the 300-year reunion of Centaur and Dragon. A gold and red dragon label sits at its centre and the 300-year collar has dragon scale detailing. The gift box fans open in a display of multi-coloured dragon scales, revealing the signature spirit of the house’s cellar master.
Expect an explosion of flower and fruit aromas on the nose followed by ripe plum and candied orange, through to spices and hazelnuts on the palate, and a smooth, full-bodied, and long-lasting finish.
Rémy Martin CLUB welcomes a new energy with a gold anniversary neck collar and festive dragon label. The geometric gift box has a multi-coloured dragon scale design, ideal for gifting, while the spirit within boasts French oak, burnished almonds and warm, spiced cinnamon on the nose followed by an abundance of intense flavours travelling from rich apricot to sweet nutmeg and roasted coffee on the palate.
Finally, theRémy Martin VSOP Chinese New Year edition features a festive design inspired by the two celestial creatures. The frosted bottle is amplified with a 300th-anniversary neck collar, while the gift box is embossed with a vibrant dragon scale motif.
An approachable spirit, look for an aromatic harmony of vanilla, dried apricot and candied pear on the nose followed by aromatic dried fruits and delicate liquorice.
