Indulge in Luxury: A Detailed Exploration of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal

A Legacy of Excellence

Nestled in the heart of France's Cognac region, Rémy Martin has been crafting exceptional spirits since 1724. Their 1738 Accord Royal stands as a testament to this rich heritage, commemorating the royal distinction bestowed upon the house by King Louis XV in 1738.

A Blend of Distinction

Unlike standard VSOP or XO classifications, Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal occupies a unique space. This exquisite Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie sourced exclusively from the prestigious Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus. These coveted vineyards are renowned for their chalky soil, ideal for cultivating grapes that yield eaux-de-vie with exceptional ageing potential.

The Art of Maturation

Following traditional methods, the eaux-de-vie are meticulously distilled in copper stills "sur lies" (with lees), a technique that imbues the spirit with depth and complexity. These precious liquids then embark on a lengthy maturation journey in specially selected French oak barrels. The barrels undergo a gentle, extended toasting process, imparting the Cognac with a signature oaky character while preserving its natural elegance.

A Symphony of Flavours

Eye: Pour yourself a generous measure of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal and admire its captivating colour. The spirit boasts a shimmering, rich copper hue, reminiscent of the very Cognac pot stills it once graced.

Nose: As you bring the snifter closer, a captivating bouquet unfolds. The initial aromas are dominated by luscious plum and fig jam, their sweetness beautifully counterpointed by hints of toasted bread, vanilla, and a touch of cinnamon brioche. These fragrant notes are further complemented by subtle oaky undertones, creating a truly layered and inviting olfactory experience.

Palate: The first sip of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal is a revelation. The texture is exceptionally smooth and velvety, coating the palate in a luxurious embrace. The initial burst of flavour is a delightful meld of spiced butterscotch and hints of dark chocolate, both wonderfully balanced by the underlying oaky notes. As the Cognac lingers on the tongue, a surprising creaminess emerges, accentuated by a touch of chalky minerality and a whisper of concentrated nuts.

Finish: The finish of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal is incredibly long and satisfying. The flavours slowly fade, leaving behind a lingering warmth and a subtle echo of the oak and spice.

The Perfect Serve

Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal is a truly versatile Cognac, perfect for a variety of occasions. Here are some suggestions to elevate your tasting experience:
