The Remy Martin Fine Champagne No. 1 Carte Blanche Cognac by Baptiste Loiseau
The talents of cellar master, Baptiste Loiseau, certainly come to the fore in this wonderful Fine Champagne Cognac. The Remy Martin Carte Blanche a Baptiste Loiseau No 1 Gensac La Palluc Cellar Edition is the end result of Loiseau's brief to create an exclusive limited edition - and he had 'carte blanche' to use whatever he wanted from the cellars of the Cognac giant, Rémy Martin.
He scoured the house's incredible legacy, eventually settling on a single vat to form the base of this stylish Cognac. And now this delightful blend is has been launched in a strictly limited edition of 7,000 bottles. Each is presented in a 're-edition' of the original Remy Martin Charentaise bottle that dates back to the end of the 19th century.
The eaux-de-vie used within the blend are all aged for more than 20 years. It has been bottled at the percentage and proof that naturally occurs in the vat in order to preserve all the original attributes: 41.1%.
Created using eaux-de-vie from the Fine Champagne, it is the essence of elegance in a bottle. Definitely one for the connoisseur.
We adore the simple white and gold embossed label on a slim bottle, and a gorgeous grey, white and gold presentation sleeve to make it the perfect gift.
Woah. Well done Baptiste
Now this Cognac is really a great first masterpiece by Baptiste. I met Baptiste (the cellar master of Rémy Martin) and he gave me an introduction to his very first blend. I really loved it, a very mature & adult cognac, very connoisseur. I'm happy it won a gold award, because it sort of deserves it. Of course, it's a bit of a higher price point, as it is Rémy Martin. Great collector item.
