Jean-Luc Montembault - Guide & Cognac Educator

One of my tours is called "The Cognac: a luxury and terroir product". On the Terroir side, I take my passengers to the discovery of the vineyard and make them meet a traditional distiller and a cooper. On the luxury side, we make a stopover at the Historic House of de Rémy Martin.
The role of a trading house in the elaboration of cognacs is fairly presented. The tasting of gourmet snacks with cognacs is an epicurean moment that brings my guests to discover a new world of flavors and aromas.
The time spent there and the living room where the tasting takes place make it a luxury moment that my hosts are eager to relive at home among their friends.
Should I say : I love to bring my own friends at the Historic House of Rémy Martin just to be in the place of my passengers ! ...

For almost three centuries, Rémy Martin, a Living Heritage business, has been rooted in the soil of Cognac.
Thanks to its origins as a family-run business of winemakers, the company knows the value of time, patience and rarity.

Rémy Martin Cognac, exclusively Fine Champagne

All Rémy Martin cognacs are blended from eaux-de-vie that come exclusively from Grande and Petite Champagne. The chalky soil where these prestigious vines grow gives an infinitely aromatic subtlety to the eaux-de-vie. With each succeeding generation, Rémy Martin had enriched its savoir-faire and heritage. Fine Champagne is in its DNA.
