A Very Fine Liqueur Brandy from 1960: Martell Cordon Argent

We’ve come across an unusual bottle of Martell Cognac, which is reserved for the most refined of collectors. This bottle of Martell Cordon Argent was bottled in 1960, and is a terrific Cognac. It truly showcases the blending mastery of the Martell house. 

‘Argent’ means silver in French, and this Cognac, which reaches back over 60 years is in every way a precious bottle. Typically, the Martell Cordon Argent was created for the US market to showcase the fine blending power of Cognac. 

It has been concocted drawing eaux-de-vie from the house’s Paradis cellar, which contains many eaux-de-vie reaching hundreds of years in age. We reckon this bottle could very well contain 19th-century eaux-de-vie judging by the age and quality. 

This bottle of Martell Cordon Argent qualifies as an Extra Cognac, and is made up of a beautiful symphony of eaux-de-vie with a large number from the highly sought-after Borderies cru. 

Expect a rich Cognac with plenty of depth, yet with elegant nuances and texture. 

Story of the bottle

The owner of this bottle has stored it in the basement, and it was acquired upon the liquidation of an estate. The bottle was originally sold by a US distributor in New York. 

Presentation of the bottle

Part of the wax stamp on the side of the bottle has worn off, other than that it is new and unopened. We adore this older style of Martell labeling. The traditional blue and white color scheme will look wonderful on display, and its aged effect also adds to its charm.

About Martell Cognac

Martell is the oldest of the Big Four Cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, not long ago did Martell celebrate its 300-year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715 when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in Cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, the cuvée Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market, and are famous for using large amounts of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terroir. It belongs to Pernod Ricard and has sales of around 15 million liters every year. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell - approximately 1.6 million 9-liter cases!
