Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
Martell Chanteloup Perspective Extra Cognac is an invitation into the secret of the Chanteloup Estate. Centuries of history, passion, and Cognac expertise are hidden within the walls of this estate - the home of Martell Cognac.
Everything about this Cognac screams quality; from the beautiful bottle that's adorned with a pattern signifying the gates of the Chateau, to the opening of the bottle to that unleashes the secrets delicately held inside.
The blend has been assembled using eaux-de-vie from four of the growth areas: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Fins Bois, and Borderies. This has led to a particularly well balanced Cognac that will delight anyone who enjoys the finer things in life.
Martell Chanteloup Perspective is an 'Extra' Cognac - well aged and offering the perfect balance of aromas and sensations.
Cellar Master, Christophe Valtaud, says of his creation, "It conjours an image of the Chanteloup Estate and the varied landscapes of the Borderies. Classed in the 'Extra' category, the Cognac pays tribute to both the Chanteloup Estate and the design of our blend. It has both the trademark structure and the elegance of Martell Cognacs".
A great new addition to Martell's typical taste line
I remember I was at Chateau Chanteloup (Martell's HQ-ish castle close to the town of Cognac. Check out the blog and search for "Chanteloup") when I got an exclusive sneak preview of Martell's latest EXTRA blend, before it was released. Absolutely delicate Cognac, a blend of different crus.. including Martell's typical Borderies note. Not too sweet, not too rough.
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!
