Rémy Martin 1988 Vintage Premier Cru is a limited edition Grande Champagne cognac, from the harvest of a single unique year. 1988 was a year of extreme weather conditions in Cognac with particularly heavy rainfall resulting in an unusually small harvest.
The Rémy Martin cellar master selected just four lots of eaux-de-vie out of a thousand and set them aside. Rémy Martin has chosen to release this rare 1988 Vintage at the point it reached 45% alcohol – after 18 years in Limousin oak casks. This ensures that the opulence, the harmony and the length create the optimum aromatic intensity.
