Since 1724 Rémy Martin has been first and foremost a vigneron, growing grapes and distilling wine into precious eaux-de-vie. Today, Rémy Martin remains committed to the traditional methods of fine distillation - on the lees in small copper stills called alambics, resulting in a more complex spirit with better depth and length of flavour.
The secret of Cognac is in the soil from which it comes. For this reason, Rémy Martin only uses grapes from the most respected growing regions - the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. These regions contain a unique type of chalk-flecked soil that reflects light and ripens the grapes to absolute perfection.
The grape varieties used in the production of Rémy Martin are Ugni Blanc (97%) and Colombard, Folle Blanche (3%). It’s the job of the Cellar Master to blend the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie to reveal its unique aromatic intensity, as well as make sure it remains true to the Rémy Martin Fine Champagne Cognac style. Pierrette Trichet, Remy Martin’s current Cellar Master and only the fourth in the past 100 years, uses her skill to find the perfect harmony of a broad range of aromas and flavours.
“Releasing the aromatic heart of Fine Champagne is my life’s work. Distilling by traditional methods in small alambics, working in harmony with time, and exclusively nurturing the eaux-de-vie in Limousin oak casks enables us to reveal the aromatic intensity that can only be found in Rémy Martin Fine Champagne Cognac”
The creation of the Louis XIII cognac in 1874 is in no way a coincidence. It represents the absolute mastery of time, a succession of daring initiatives and an unceasing quest for quality within the House of Rémy Martin. Louis XIII, the prestigious bond between the past and the future, opens – with the passion of three generations of cellar masters – the doors to the great saga of luxury spirits. It illustrates the collective work of men with strong ties to their land and the guardians of secular secrets.Their art will cross the 20th century. It will embrace the future with a steadfast faith and an extraordinary boldness.This art is similar to that of cathedral builders who never saw the completion of their work and used only the best materials for their building.
