Eye: Rich amber.

Nose: Aromas of cinnamon, wildflowers and wood, balanced with a prune-like sweetness.

Palate: Supple and full-bodied in the mouth. A rounded sense of vanilla, citrus peel and spices followed by dried nuts, roasted cocoa beans and chestnut. Rather masculine. The finish is warm with leather notes, long and satisfying.

Growth area & soil: Borderies

Description

Martell Cordon Bleu Chinese New Year Limited Edition Cognac

This is a great take on the classic Martell Cordon Bleu XO Cognac that has attracted legions of fans since its inception in 1912. The Martell Cordon Bleu Chinese New Year Limited Edition Cognac has been created to coincide with the 2018 Chinese New Year, with a quirky bottle that fits beautifully in with the celebrations. Inspired by the Wishing Tree, where people hang red envelopes with their wishes for the coming year, the bottle design was created by German-born artist Sabrina Transiskus. While the packaging is a limited edition, the contents remaining true to the Martell Cordon Bleu we all know and love: aromatic, characterful, and most of all, a top-quality XO from this iconic Cognac house. 

There have been no changes at all to the Cordon Bleu recipe over the last century, demonstrating its timeless quality. The distinctive taste comes from a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terroir, the smallest in the Cognac region, which is known for producing Cognacs that have a very specific aroma. With a different clay and flint composition in its soil compared to the other terroirs, the hills of the Borderies are something else indeed. In total, the Cordon Bleu is a symphony of over 150 eaux-de-vie, with a complex array of rich aromas to make it a Cognac that has established itself as legendary.

“The Cordon Bleu Extra is very elegant, subtle. It’s different. It’s meant to be sipped in leisure.”

- Christophe Valtaud, Martell Cellar Master

Presentation of the Bottle

The bottle's elegant profile is typical of Martell, with its gently curved neck decorated with a cordon bleu (blue ribbon). Both the carton and bottle feature the same royal blue hue, with embossed gold vine leaves and red envelopes adding splashes of color. 

How to Enjoy Martell Cordon Bleu 

Mature, well-rounded, with a bouquet and flavors that evolve delightfully during the taste experience, this is a perfect Cognac to enjoy in the traditional manner - from a tulip glass, gently warmed in the hand and sipped as a digestif after a fine meal.

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!
