Some might say that cognac has a traditional image. While drinking it neat was once the only way to go, making it as a cocktail is now a popular choice. Even Rémy Martin’s Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau is fond of having his VSOP served with ginger ale.
It’s certain that the over-300-year-old house of Rémy Martin has a hand in widening the public’s interest in cognac. One such effort is releasing a Carte Blanche.
It meant the Cellar Master is given a complete freehand in the cognac he wants to make. No release date imposed. No specific number of editions required. No constraints. No conditions by the higher-ups. Just Loiseau, his palate and his vision.
For cognac lovers, each of the 9650 bottles represents an exceptional opportunity to sample this blend. It is aged at least 27 years and bottled at the percentage proof naturally occurring in the vat to preserve its original attributes: 44.1%.
The taste? Exceptional and distinctive. A profound yet smooth cognac, expressing remarkable nuances with delicate notes of plum and gingerbread. Bottled at the percentage proof naturally occurring in the vat, it holds a bold yet pure character, one that’s best enjoyed neat. One that pairs beautifully with chocolate, as recommended by Rémy Martin international brand ambassador Thierry Arnold.
This blend of cognac is so rare, it deserves to be both enjoyed and kept.
