20 Rue de la Société Vinicole, 16100 Cognac
The history of the family business dates back to 1724 when a young winemaker, Rémy Martin, began producing and selling cognacs. Little by little, the excellence of Rémy Martin's cognacs gained notoriety. First in France, then worldwide thanks to exports to Europe, America, and Asia.
The commercial development of Rémy Martin has always gone hand in hand with the search for quality. In 1948, André Renauld, the president of the House since 1924, decided to use exclusively vintages from the Grande Champagne and Petit Champagne appellations for their production. Several labels were launched and met with great success due to the finesse and exclusivity of the product.
Today, the vineyard continues to evolve in order to refine its production. Especially in development of environmental approach, which is reflected in its level 3 High Environmental Value (HVE) certification.
The Cognac terroir is characterized by rich limestone soils and the influence of ocean winds. Rémy Martin's cognacs are made exclusively from Grand and Petit Champage, which cover approximately 28,400 hectares. The wine to be distilled to make this eau de vie is mainly from white grapes (Ugni Blanc), which allows the production of a wine with a high acidity and low alcohol content.
