Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal arrives in France

1 September 2016

The 1738 Accord Royal reaches a symbolic stage in its journey by returning to its birthplace. Following tremendous success in the USA and a strong presence in Japan and South Africa, this connoisseur blend pays tribute to the 'Royal Accord'—a very special honor granted by King Louis XV to Rémy Martin in 1738.

In a continuous quest for excellence, Rémy Martin is proud to unveil this Fine Champagne cognac. Incomparably smooth on the palate, it was aged in toasted oak casks.

Impressed by the quality of the cognacs and the House expertise, King Louis XV of France gives Rémy Martin his 'Accord Royal' to plant new vines in 1738 in spite of the strict ban in place across the country. This rare privilege rewards the excellence of Rémy Martin expertise and was granted just 14 years after its creation.

To pay tribute to this defining moment in Rémy Martin history, in 1997, Cellar Master Georges Clot decides to create a unique blend inspired by the house's pioneering techniques. He thus selects eaux-de-vie distilled on lees in small copper stills and aged in Limousin-style toasted oak casks enriched with tannins.

The result is 1738 Accord Royal, a tribute to this distinction awarded 275 years ago by King Louis XV.
