About Rémy Martin
The legendary House of Rémy Martin is indubitably intertwined with the lands of Charente, where it was founded in 1724 by Rémy Martin, a descendant of Charente winemakers. This quaint portion of French terroir has given birth to some of the richest and most fertile crus of Grande and Petite Champagne. These quality vineyards with pale and chalky soils yield some of the most aromatic grapes.
Situated on the banks of the Charente River, the Cognac region of France is divided into six different crus (cru is the French term for growth zones): Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bon Bois, and Bois Ordinaire. The Grande Champagne cru, which comprises approximately 34,000 hectares, is known for its quiet hills and rich, chalky soil, and is considered to produce the finest cognac in the region. The ideal conditions of these terroirs ripen the grapes to perfection, revealing "an exhilarating bouquet of Fine Champagne."
Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.
The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).
Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
