Rémy Martin 1724 – 1974 (250 year Anniversary)

Today we received an awesome Rémy Martin 1724 – 1974, a Grande Champagne Cognac specially blended by Rémy Martin for their 250th birthday in 1974. The production was limited to 38.709 individually numbered and sealed bottles so this Cognac is quite exceptional today. Each bottle came with an certificate and wooden box.
However no information could be found about the age, some sources say that this blend also contains some Cognacs from the 18th century.

La Fontaine de la Pouyade – Grande Champagne Cognac

La Fontaine de la Pouyade is one of the most exclusive and desirable Cognacs in the world, only a limited number of bottles are available worldwide.
This rare and exciting cognac, produced by the house Bouyer-Dubosquet is aged for more than 80 years! The German gourmet magazine (“Der Feinschmecker”) once organized a blind tasting (only experts and sommeliers took part) with high end cognac like Hennessy Richard and Rémy Martin Louis XIII and this cognac was the best!

Cognac made from Folle Blanche grapes and Grande Champagne

Folle Blanche is the most elegant grape variety in the Cognac, Grande Champagne is the best cru of all Cognac regions. A combination of these two is very hard to find, only some very old (pre-1895) are to be found…
Luckily Raymond Ragnaud made the Folle Blache Vintage 2002, and we tasted it at the Vinexpo! It is truly an exceptional Cognac!
