Martell Cordon Bleu Extra Cognac is a new take on an old favorite, with some subtle differences. The first is the age of the cognac. The normal Cordon Bleu is an XO quality, but, as the name suggests, this new model is an Extra Cognac. Whilst it still has a lot in common with the original Cordon Bleu blend (a large proportion of Borderies eaux-de-vie and candied fruit aromas), this brand new product delights with its depth and taste sensations.
The bottle and label also has a contemporary, 21st century look, while still paying tribute to the original 1912 design. A lovely EXTRA offering that will be truly enjoyed by those who enjoy cognacs from the Borderies terroir.
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!
