Pierrette Trichet is not the kind of woman who walks with her nose stuck up in the air. In fact, most of the time, her nose is bent over a glass of cognac. As the first and only female cellar master at a major cognac house, it is Trichet’s responsibility at Rémy Martin to select the best eaux-de-vie (chosen by said nose), which will make up the components of Louis XIII, often called the king of cognac.
Trichet, 55, who has been working for the prestigious house for 30 years, first worked for Rémy Martin’s owner Andre Heriard Dubreuil’s research laboratory, and then joined the tasting commission before she was entrusted by the previous cellar master, Georges Clot, to look after the Louis XIII exceptional blends.
