Martell Cordon Bleu is the cognac for true connoisseurs and has acquired legendary status since its creation by Edouard Martell in 1912. Its distinctive taste, characterised by a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies, and its timeless bottle design make it a classic, unequalled in the world of cognac. An explosion of deliciously fruited, spice notes. Elegance linked to aromatic richness is what defines Martell Cordon Bleu.
The House of Martell has introduced a disruptive cognac within the Martell range, revealing a new cognac filtered at room temperature - and not below 0C - like most cognacs - to obtain smoother and more expressive aromas to be enjoyed on ice. Through this method, the Martell NCF's smooth taste is exceptionally preserved.
Martell Noblige Cognac is named in reference to the old French saying, 'Noblesse Oblige'. Translated to ‘nobility obligates’, it calls on the responsibilities which come with wealth and power; a suitable reference for a dignified and sophisticated Cognac. Delightfully fruity on the palate, this Napoléon blend contains Cognacs aged 10 years or more, incorporating a greater share of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies region for a floral aroma. The oldest of the great Cognac houses, the House of Martell celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2015. Aged only 21 when he started out, founder Jean Martell built his family home and business on the banks of the Charente River where it still stands today. Martell Cognac has always attracted people of extravagant tastes, counting George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Napoleon Bonaparte, Tsar Nicholas II and Winston Churchill among its fans - fine company indeed for such a noble brand.
An authentic expression of the Martell style. Martell VSOP is now aged exclusively in red oak barrel. When a barrel is called “Red”, a reference to the reddish color of aged wood, it has aged before other eaux-de-vie during at least 2 years up to 8 years, reaching the perfect stage of maturation for both the wood and the spirit.. A deeper exploration of the influence of fine-grained oak red barrel creates the perfect bed to mature the cognac, allowing natural fruit aromas to blend harmoniously with subtle woody notes. A brilliantly rich and refined cognac.
Martell XO is instantly identifiable for its intense taste and daring, contemporary design. A prestigious blend of Grande Champagne and Borderies eaux-de-vie, this cognac has a bold and charismatic personality, which is reflected in the striking arch of its bottle.
