Giveaway: Rémy Martin Accord Royal 1738 Limited Gentleman Deck of Cards

3

Today the great house of Rémy Martin is the world leader in superior quality cognacs and the number one cognac brand in France. The house of Rémy Martin is the only major cognac house that has direct family ties with the region of Cognac; and today it continues to create Fine champagne Cognacs blended from grapes grown only in the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne crus, the two most sought after growing areas in the Cognac region. Grapes from these vineyards offer the greatest ageing potential, and when combined with fine distillation on the lees, longer maturation in the cask and the Cellar Master;s savoir-Faire, will ultimately reveal a cognac of unique aromatic intensity. Rémy Martin portfolio of cognac includes 1738 Accord Royal®, V.S.O.P®, XO Excellence®, Rémy Martin 1989® and Louis XIII®.

In 1731, French monarch Louis the Fifteenth decreed that no new vines could be planted without royal permission in an attempt to avoid over-production. Large fines would be assessed on any proprietor who did so. Despite this decree, Rémy Martin had already become a favorite of kings and the upper echelon of society and he was granted dispensation. Allowed to plant a new vineyard in 1738, it proved a crucial point in Rémy history and in the continued expansion of the Rémy Martin cognac empire.
