Martell Cognac

Martell is the oldest of the big cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, Martell will soon 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, 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. 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!

    The Cordon Bleus taste is dominated by the eaux-de-vie from the Borderies region. On the nose: Floral and elegant. On the palate: A round and smooth cognac, rather masculine, with some hints of fruit and wood. The finish is a long one.

    This is the same cognac as the "standard" Martell XO. The color of XO Martell is deep golden. On the nose: Some leather hints, dry fruit. On the palate: Round and fruity - more the feminine XO, then it increases its complex aromas, and spicy notes come through, wood. The Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie adds to the final, an elegant and long finish.

                              Its a little dificult to estimated the value, because Martell have severe different bottle at the 250 ans. But if this bottle is in wooden box it might be worth up to 1500-2000 euro.

                              If you send me an picture i can make an better guess oft he value.

                                                      Hi Jan

                                                      if you like the cognac, it really does not matter, does ut?? :-)

                                                      But i understand your doubts. It can be hard to detect counterfeit.

                                                      If the bottles are new, i suggest that you buy an other simular bottle somewhere else, to compare the bottle / label and taste. this would give you an good chance to detect any faulse bottles.

                                                      If any have some Martell to sell, please let me know

                                                            I have been buying Martell from our local shops and really doubt its genuine Martell and was just wondering how I can tell the difference between genuine Martell and counterfeit. Is there a kind of a tester for home use? The last bottle I bought had double neck covering and this even made me doubt the genuineness of the product I bought.

                                                                            Ironically enough, I don't drink and I was given a Martell Cognac in a Baccarat crystal decanter over 25 years ago as a wedding present. I was wondering if there are people who are interested in buying this type of item and if so, what the current market price would be for it. Thank you very much.

Impeccable condition. Labels intact, original box and tissue...inherited over thirty years ago, stored lovingly. Anybody might be wanting to experience this? Let me know, it's a showstopper.

Exactly what month was this cognac Cordon Bleu available in 1912 and did this company supply The White Star Line through American Express Co (who supplied cognac to them) or Van Renssaller, C.A.? Needle in haystack question I know but why not.

                                                                                                      Dina 2012-04-07

A full preserved bottle of L'Art de Martell is available from a collector I know. There are 1997 bottles in the world and I believe his number is under 500.

                                                                                                        Joe 2012-03-13

Martell is just the king out there. so much style! that's what you buy here, it's the brand; and the brand of Martell is just great.


                                                                                                        I only wonder when they will come out with an Martell Asia product like Hennessy did with Classium, Remy with Centaure, Courvoisier .. not really, but they are not that active in Asia anyway.. but Martell is. perhaps they don't need a china-only martell.

                                                                                                          When Jean Martell, the founder or the cognac house, died in 1753, Gatebourse, the first site of Martell production had already become the center of an aspiring business and a prosperous future. Jean’s two sons Jean and Frédéric would continue what their father had begun. In the later half of the century, they would be exporting 200.000 liters of cognac to Britain. In the following century, around 1842, Martell started targeting the Chinese market and opened up export activities to the Far East from then on. The introduction of Martell Cordon Bleu in 1912 had a huge impact on the company’s success. It has since become one of the most loved cognacs worldwide.

The origins of the Chateau date back to the 16th century. In the 1930s, out of a rather strange wish to please his wife from Normandy, Maurice Firino-Martell changed the architecture of the Chateau to what it is today: with a typical Normandy-style façade.

                                                                                                          In 2001, Martell & Co joined Pernod Ricard, who had just taken over a large part of the spirits company Seagram. Later on, in 2005, Pernod Ricard acquired over half of d’Allied Domecq and finally the champagne labels Mumm and Perrier-Jouet joined as well, turning the group into: Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouet. Like many similar brands, Martell needs to place itself in line with the luxury labels. The company concentrates on its top-of-the-line products such as Martell XO or Martell Création Grand Extra 2007. These products were introduced to the market with large campaigns, resulting in a boom of the premium products. Its most important markets are China, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, USA, Britain, Russia and Mexico. The annual volume in terms of sales has been estimated to lie around 15 million litres, with a growing tendency.

The most precious eaux-de-vie, some dating back to 1830, are stored in a cellar called “Paradis”, which has a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell.

Like many companies nowadays, Martell is engaging in supporting the arts by handing our generous prizes to living artists. The essence of the prize lies in the origins of Jean Martell’s spirit: to be independent and inspired. Martell Création Grand Extra was launched in 2007, its beautiful bottle was designed by the sculptor Serge Mansau.


                                                                                                          Martell achieves almost 100% of its sales through export. Only a small fraction gets consumed in France.


                                                                                                          Martell published a book called “L’Or & l’Art”, which writes the history of the exquisite bottle L’Or de Jean Martell, drawing a link to the arts and crafts surrounding gold.
