Rémy Martin is a French producer of a kind of brandy from the Cognac region of France, which is also known as ‘cognac’, with an impressive legacy spanning over three centuries.
The firm’s most sought-after product is their Cognac Fine Champagne, which is made using eaux-de-vie from the absolute best vineyards of the Cognac region, the Grande Champagne and the Petite Champagne. The Cognac Fine Champagne was first created by Rémy Martin, a French winemaker, who managed to blend the eaux-de-vie from these two crus, in a way that brought out their ageing potential, in order to create the liquid gold whose rich palette of flavors and tastes is unrivaled worldwide. The word ‘champagne’ itself, attests to the soil’s chalkiness, which may just be the secret to these grapes’ higher quality!
However, without the expertise of the house Cellar Masters, it would be impossible to achieve this level of excellence; they are blessed with the ability of taking the gifts nature provided them with, and transforming them into the best cognac in the world. Every Cellar Master’s skills and knowledge are passed down through generations, and today the task of creating the Rémy Martin Cognac Fine Champagne falls to mr. Baptiste Loiseau, the fifth in a long line of trusted Masters. The barrels used in order to age the wine are made of French Limousin oak, which adds to the aroma of the final product, until the eaux-de-vie of different ages are mixed together to create the most exhilarating blends!
The premier eau-de-vie de vin from the House of Rémy Martin is the legendary ‘Rémy Martin V’, which is made of the finest grapes of the aforementioned growing regions, and distilled in copper pot stills, resulting in a vibrant, intricate and smooth cognac, whose enchanting aroma reminds us faintly of pears, grapes and melon, whereas its taste hints at pear and mint!
