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 long and satisfying.

    Martell Cohibas nose is rather soft, mellow but complex. Some sweet notes, like vanilla, hazlenut and slight honey. In the mouth: Quite down the line, a good strength, but round and fresh - some wood aromas. The finish is well balanced.

    Tasting reveiw by Martell: Nose: Seduces with fragrances of white flowers. A hint of honey, slight aromas of almond paste and of frangipane.  Palate: The attack is round and fluffy, one crunches quince or plum, before a final delight of pastry.  Delights with a long satisfying finish.

    The Martell is a young blend, so no wonder we notice a very fruity aroma - with an idea of oak. The finish is rough, but short.

    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.

    To the eye: We can admire an elegant coppery color with golden glints. On the nose: We first notice gourmet aromas such as banana and caramelized pears. Then a subtle sweetness appears, and notes of vanilla & coconut mixed with spicy and menthol are revealed.

    The content seems to be the same as the original Noblige: Its color is dark copper, on the nose some fresh and fruity notes, slight hints of dry fruits and oak. Taste: Floral aromas, some vanilla and nuts. Borderies eaux-de-vie cru. The aftertaste is smooth and long at the same time.  A delight to enjoy straight, warmed gently in your hand.

I have a few bottles I'm looking to get evaluated for their value. 1959/60 Remy Martin Louis Xlll rarest reserve in original box. Also have a bottle of J&F Martell Cordon Bleu cognac also in original box.

I'd love to see what they are worth and possibly sell.

                                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.

                                                              Thanks

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.



                                                                                                            Martell still owns its family estate, which is situated in Cherves Richemont in the heart of the Borderies and has been turned into a guesthouse. 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.



                                                                                                            Martell Today



                                                                                                            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.


                                                                                                            Martell’s Cellar Master Benoit Fil continues to treasure the company’s secret of blending in the tradition of handing down the expertise from generation to generation. 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.

                                                                                                            Famous fashion photographers Paolo Roversi and Miles Aldrige have shot Martell’s Cordon Bleu campaigns. 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.
