Baptiste Loiseau to succeed Pierrette Trichet

Dominique Hériard Dubreuil, chairwoman of the House of Rémy Martin, and Patrick Piana, CEO, have announced the upcoming appointment of Baptiste Loiseau as the cellar master who will succeed Pierrette Trichet.

In the spring of 2014, the House of Rémy Martin will organise an induction ceremony to pay tribute to Pierrette Trichet and officially welcome Baptiste Loiseau to his new duties.

Pierrette Trichet will have left an indelible mark on the House. She joined the study and research laboratory in 1976 and went on to become the first female cellar master of a major cognac house in 2003. She has become recognised for her exceptional nose for selecting eaux-de-vie and for her daring creativity.

After 38 years at the House, Pierrette Trichet has decided to pass the baton to Baptiste Loiseau, to whom she has transmitted her expertise.

Born in Cognac, Baptiste Loiseau, an agricultural engineer and oenologist, joined the House in 2007. The Cognac House says he is “a passionate, committed person whose curiosity is insatiable, driven by an unquenchable thirst for learning” and Pierrette Trichet immediately saw the qualities of a future cellar master in him. “He is close to the wine-growing world and has excellent expertise in tasting Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne cognacs and eaux-de-vie. Now he will be the guarantor of style at the House of Rémy Martin.” He will join the

foursome that has ensured the House’s grandeur for the last century: André Renaud, André Giraud, Georges Clot and Pierrette Trichet.
