Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Martell Domaine Pierre de Bechillon-Boraud Cognac is a blend of three eaux-de-vie from the premier terroir of the region, Grande Champagne. This is one of the first releases of Martell's Single Estate Collection, an initiative by the house to create high end, limited edition Cognacs that, thanks to a combination of estate and terroir, will truly appeal to the connoiseur.
Only 3000 bottles of this round, harmonious Cognac are to be produced. Each bottle is individually numbered, and presented in a delightfully simplistic bottle, with wonderfully engraved labels. The bottle itself comes in a presentation box created from natural wood, yet another intentional simplistic factor to the presentation that leaves the Cognac within to do the talking.
A distinctly fruity, spicy Cognac of true age and quality. Would make a wonderful present for anyone who enjoys the finer things in life.
MARTEL DOMAINE PIERRE
LOVE THE MARTEL COGNAC FINISH, NOT ENOUGH OOOO'S IN SMOOTH, THE BLENDING OF HUNDREDS DIFFERENT VINTAGES, IT IS JUST AS UNIQUE AS MARTEL ITSELF.
I am totally in love with Martell's new edition: One of the greatest noses I've ever experienced, the palate is fantastic and typical Grande Champagne quality! The after taste is loooong and I like it. I also love the packaging, the blend prestend in a classic montre which communicates the brand's typical understatement.
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!
