Cécile Roudaut, our Master Blender
The dynamic Master Blender of St-Rémy was born in the bountiful Loire Valley. She still upholds the values of small-town living, with a house surrounded by vineyards that was formerly a post office.
In the summer of 1997, Cécile joined Rémy Cointreau. Nearly two decades later, having helped with the creation of limited editions of St-Rémy, she was appointed Master Blender by her retiring predecessor Martine Pain.
Cécile Roudaut defines her role as Master Blender as follows: “I work on selecting eaux-de-vies and nurturing them as they mature in Limousin oak barrels. I then evaluate them and create blends that will ultimately become St-Rémy.” Cécile is aware of the expectations of her work. “St-Rémy is an elegant brandy combining tradition, history and a unique smoothness. I see it as my role to ensure our brandy retains its authenticity and may be enjoyed by consumers from around age 30 to heaven!”
