It's a very slick operation from the parking through the neat grounds to the welcome and beyond.
Our guide was excellent, and we understood it all as we had booked the English tour.
Having toured whisky distilleries and all the bourbon distilleries in Kentucky, the methods were familiar, in fact the stone buildings hosting the maturing barrels reminded us of the wooden rack houses in the USA, with the blackness of the fungus that lives on the "angels' share" very obvious, even on the tree trunks in the grounds.
The process was expertly explained and we saw various parts of the site, being transported in an electric vehicle when necessary. What annoyed me was that we were told not to film and to turn off mobile phones because of the heady and explosive atmosphere in the buildings, but still a couple of people ignored the request.
Before we went back to the visitor centre, we went into the oldest store and saw barrels of unbelievable antiquity with almost priceless contents, most of it evaporated to the angels!
The tour ended with a tasting of two cognacs.
It's very expensive so we didn't buy any. I'd never dare to drink it, I think at the price. But it was gorgeous.

I am not a cognac drinker and didn't even sample them, but the tour was incredible. The facility was beautiful and the tour guide was very professional. It was very interesting to me about the history and the process. The tasting room was quite lovely and the 3 tastings were served with food. Quite classy! My husband drank my cognac, but I still felt it was very worthwhile. We were with a group of 18 and the cost was included, so I can't comment on value.

I have been living in France for 6 years and this was the first time I can honestly say the service was beyond expectations. Th guide was so knowledgeable and friendly, the estate was sublime and the tasting was accompanied with gourmet food. The fee was only 18€ for 90 minutes and the tasting plus kids are free!! The guide was very friendly with the kids as well and they had cookies and juice instead of Cognac.
I highly recommend this visit!!!!

Our group of 6 went on the "At the Estate in Merpins" tour at Remy Martin and we all enjoyed it very much. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and spoke excellent English. The tour was was well-orgainsed and we were told a lot of interesting information about the process of making cognac. A little train took us around the estate and we got to visit buildings where the different processes took place. The tour ended with a tasting of two cognacs and a small bite to eat (including a really delicious macaroon).
