The House of Rémy Martin Gives Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau “Carte Blanche” to Select a Limited-Edition Blend.
For 7 years, Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau crafted Rémy Martin cognacs side by side with his predecessor to ensure the range’s consistency and to create cognacs that represent the epitome of the taste and spirit of the House of Rémy Martin. When Loiseau became Cellar Master in 2014, the House granted him “Carte Blanche,” or free reign, to utilize his cognac expertise to select a unique blend that reflected his personal style and highlighted the treasures of the Maison.
This Holiday, Rémy Martin is revealing Carte Blanche Merpins, a new limited-edition blend in the United States. There will only be 2,000 numbered bottles available in the United States at specialty locations nationwide and will retail for $500 USD per bottle.
“For this edition of Carte Blanche, I wanted to illustrate the unique character of Rémy Martin with an original blend. I carefully selected this Cognac Fine Champagne from the collection of eau-de-vies housed in our Merpins cellars.”
– Baptiste Loiseau, Cellar Master for the House of Rémy Martin
Matured in a single vat, it perfectly embodies the spirit of the House. Bottled at the percentage proof naturally occurring in the vat at 42%, the original structure of the blend is completely preserved. Aged 27 years, the blend releases delicate notes of plum and gingerbread and reveals how time has worked its magic.
