MARTELL

The oldest of the great Cognac houses. 300 years of passion and precision passed down through the Martell family. From generation to generation, a celebration of French Art de Vivre, treasuring the beauty and pleasure of every moment. A rich history honouring craft and taste, with Martell cognacs enjoyed and cherished for three centuries – from regal coronations to Hollywood films, intrepid polar expeditions to royal weddings, and far beyond.

On 1715, Jean Martell leaves his native Jersey and arrives in France to devote himself to studying and developing the art of cognac. He travels the region, searching for the finest eaux-de-vie and establishing ties with local wine-growers that will last for generations.

MARTELL V.S.O.P.

Soft, mellow and complex with crystallised- fruit notes. An ample, round body. Long finish.

A balanced cognac, marked by an oaky taste. Its time spent ageing in a barrel infuses it with complex aromas along with notes of caramelised dried fruits and prunes. This tone adds a number of rich qualities to a cocktail.

TASTING NOTES

A smooth and mellow cognac that is a true cocktail of aromas, at once fresh, rounded and woody. Bittersweet softness smell of lime and liquorice. Crystallised fruit aroma of quince, raisin and plum. Spring undergrowth nose of fresh notes of oak wood.

MARTELL CORDON BLEU

Here, we have a unique cognac in the XO category, Martell Cordon Bleu is endowed with beautiful complexity and rich aromas, making it a legendary cognac. Its high proportion of Borderies marks this blend, expanding on its caramelised character with the smoothness of sweet spices, gingerbread and roasted cocoa beans.

TASTING NOTES

An explosion of deliciously fruited, spice notes. Elegance linked to aromatic richness. Sustained finish with fruit and spice notes. The preponderance of Borderies eaux-de-vie gives Martell Cordon Bleu an elegant, mellow and complex character.

MARTELL VSOP AGED IN RED BARRELS

A perfect harmony of luscious fruit aromas and refined wood overtones. At first, the bouquet is round and fresh, run through by intense fruity notes. The aromas of fresh yellow stone fruits, like cherry plum and baby Reine-Claude, are gently coated by subtle mellowed woody notes. Once in motion, the power of its aromas grows and gains depth, with fleshier fruits such as apricot or vine peach chiming in.

TASTING NOTES

In the mouth, it has a full, broad attack and unveils the same intense fruity tones – small plums and honeymoon peaches and apricots. The fruity flavours are marvellously enhanced by delicate notes of sweet spices from the wood of the russet barrels – the very same barrels that create that perfect balance between the expressiveness of the eaux-de-vie and refinement of the spiced notes.

MARTELL X.O.

Martell XO is instantly identifiable for its intense taste and bold, contemporary design. Blending the power of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne with the elegance of the rare Borderies terroir, this prestigious cognac has a bold and charismatic personality, which is reflected in the striking arch of its bottle.

TASTING NOTES

A piquant aroma, spicy sensation with notes of black and pink pepper and coriander, rounded out by rich aromas of fig, walnut and sandalwood.

Intense notes of fig for the mouth, red fruit and blackcurrant bud give full expression to the power and finesse of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne, leading into an exceptionally long, robust finish.
