Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Martell Metaphore Grande Champagne Cognac is a bespoke one off creation from this famous Cognac house. Cellar Master, Christophe Valtaud, has used four exceptional eaux-de-vie from the premier cru of the region to blend this unique product. The first eau-de-vie is from 1898, and was chosen by the very first Cellar Master of the house, Augustin Chapeau. The other three date between 1911 - 1920.
The bottle itself is a traditional style, but the presentation case is a true work of art. Created by cabinet maker, Thierry Drevelle, of Les Grands Ateliers de France, it was four years in the making. He was inspired by the geographical features of the Grande Champagne region, and is both simple and thought provoking. The case also showcases the symbolic bird emblem of the house, and the Martell signature blue tones are designed in laquer, by artist, Mireille Herbst.
