There are some things money just can’t buy, such as the Remy Martin 2008 Domaine du Grollet

Remy Martin 2008 Domaine du Grollet

Luscious label

Some insist they’re one and the same, and truth be told, they wouldn’t be too far off the mark. This unassuming Bordeaux blend comes from the exclusive confines of Domaine du Grollet, the family estate of cognac maker Remy Martin outside Cognac in Charente, southwestern France. Produced in limited numbers, it’s served only to guests at the estate in exchange not for money, but for friendship and appreciation for a red wine from a region famed for centuries for one thing and one thing only ― cognac. To have savoured this 2008 Reserve’s aromatic bouquet of black cherries and toasty oak, so smooth and mellow, is to have savoured happiness ― both equally lasting, equally hard to forget.
