Rémy Martin uses only fruit from the most revered vineyards, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, whose terroirs provide ideal conditions to ripen the grapes to perfection. Once distilled, its eaux-de-vie boast a rich and harmonious palette of aromas. More than any others, they are particularly suited to ageing.
Originally a young winemaker, Rémy Martin began selling Coganc under his own name in 1724 and just 14 years later was granted the right to plant new vines in recognition of the excellence of his cognacs by King Louis XV of France.
As an avid astronomer and also a Saggitarius, the famous logo for Rémy Martin of the Centaur was not a simply a coincidence.
Fifty years ago, Rémy Martin created the the Alliance Fine Champagne, a winegrowing cooperative, allowing growers to provide Rémy Martin with a selection unique eaux-de-vie in an equitable partnership. The only major Cognac house to specialise exclusively in Coganc Fine Champage, their blends contain at least 50% Grande Champagne grapes, with the rest coming from the surround area known as Petite Champagne. These regions are famous for their chalky soils which are soft and porous, allowing the vine's roots to grow freely.
