Fine Champagne Cognac is the only blend of two crus protected by the Appellation d'Origine ContrA'lACe (AOC, the French law of 1938), which officially recognizes the complementary qualities of Grande Champagne & Petite Champagne to provide a unique quality of cognac.
In 1965, the first contracts between winegrowers and distillers from Grande Champagne & Petite Champagne were signed with RACmy Martin, forming the Alliance Fine Champagne.
Only 17% of the cognac shipped from the region is legally recognized as Fine Champagne Cognac (Source: BNIC shipments 2004) and 80% of all Fine Champagne Cognac shipped from the region is produced by RACmy Martin.
The RACmy Martin brand is known for its distinctive centaur logo which is displayed on its wines. This is such that in China, RACmy Martin wine is almost always called "man-headed horse" instead of the actual "RACmy Martin" name.
Enjoyed this quite a bit drinking this on a recent trip to France. What a powerful and smooth Cognac.
I have a bottle of Remy Martin that is possibly a century old. How can I establish a value for the bottle?
The very first vintage Cognac from Remy Martin -- extremely rare. It is a limited edition Grande Champagne Cognac packaged in a replica of the 1830 Rémy Martin bottle and inside a beautiful wood box.
