Every year since 14 years, Remy Martin creates a special edition Cognac for the legendary Cannes Film Festival. They are the official Cognac supplier to the event. This year the suspense was especially great, because it honors the 70th anniversary of the iconic film festival. Remy Martin XO Cannes special edition 2017 is a versatile and mature XO Cognac, lovingly created from over 400 eaux-de-vie. This bottle is an exclusive collector item that will definitely make you feel glamorous.
A golden spotlight on a dramatic black background highlights the beautiful crystal decanter, reminiscent of film noir aesthetics. “Produced by André Giraud” and “Blended by Baptiste Loiseau” can be read on the box–a lovely way to feature the ancestral cellar master from the 1960s, André Giraud, and current cellar master, Baptiste Loiseau, in light of this longstanding collaboration with Cannes.
The mysterious, dark colored, star shaped carafe is presented in a box that showcases the Cognac at the top of the famous steps in Cannes, where the stars climb the red carpet every spring.
Fingers crossed to all those competing in the film competiton this year. It’s a truly amazing lineup, with stars like Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Will Smith, Tilda Swinton, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Diane Kruger, Susan Sarandon, Lily Collins, Kristen Stewart, Naomie Harris, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ruth Wilson, and Marion Cotillard parading down the red carpet – and hopefully enjoying that Remy Martin Cannes Special Edition!
