Known for making cognacs solely with eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne Crus, La Maison Rémy Martin is one of the most prestigious Cognac Houses in the world. Founded in 1724 by Rémy Martin, who originally was a wine grower by trade, the House of Rémy Martin is now responsible for approximately 15% of the cognac sales world wide.
The tradition of making Fine Champagne Cognac began with Cellar Master André Renaud, when he unveiled in 1927 the Rémy Martin Fine Champagne Cognac VSOP which was made by blending eaux-de-vie from Grande and Petite Champagne. The concept began a trend of cognacs showcasing superior quality and in 1938 Fine Champagne Cognac was legally recognized as an AOC. It is important to note that even though Fine Champagne is an AOC it is not considered one of the 6 Crus of Cognac.
A House recognized for its pioneering spirit, in 2003 Rémy Martin became the first major Cognac House to hire a female Cellar Master when they named Pierrette Trichet to assume that prestigious responsibility. The trend of succesful women playing a major role in the company continues to this day with Laura Mornet as their Winegrower Advisor.
This historic Estate is without a doubt a must visit if you are in Cognac. Its rich history and beautiful grounds will help you escape reality to a world of high spirits. The hospitality and sense of family is second to none at Rémy Martin and by the end of your visit you are most likely to feel like you are at home.
This Maison is one that we are looking forward to visiting again. We thoroughly enjoyed their famous 1738 Accord Royal Cognac. This beautifully balanced cognac with its mellow butterscoth notes is one that we suggest you try. The elegance showcased at Remy Martin is resemblant of a fairytale and we hope that you have the opportunity to get lost in their world.
