He was also succeeding Pierrette Trichet, the first woman to ever hold this position at a major cognac house. He is the man behind the house’s latest launch – Carte Blanche Merpins. His talents certainly come to the fore in this wonderful Fine Champagne cognac.
Loiseau scoured the house’s incredible legacy, eventually settling on a single vat to form the base of this stylish cognac. created this Carte Blanche edition from a cask found in the Gensac-la-Pallue cellar. The Cognac “truly embodied the spirit of the House”. A rich, complex, elegant cognac, with spicy nutmeg notes, aromas of black tea of aged leather, and a satisfyingly long finish. It has been bottled at the percentage and proof that natually occurs in the vat in order to preserve the all the original attributes: 41.1%.
This delightful blend has been launched in a strictly limited edition of 7,000 bottles. Each is presented in a ‘re-edition’ of the orignial Remy Martin Charentaise bottle that dates back to the end of the 19th century, priced at €370.
