Tasting review

The cognac reveals some wood notes, a hint of sweetness. Some fresh notes, fruity and a slight rancio note. On the palate: Quite round, complex and dry fruit. A solid length for what it is.

Mr

A fair tasting cognac that is ok to the taste, but, in my opinion, needs more nose, a little more fruit, a little more complexity. Maybe Cognac is not supposed to be like that, but, in my estimation, it should be. I haven't tried a great deal of cognacs, but for the price and prestige of this thing, it should be fairly overwhelming, and this is not. I will keep tasting until I find something that is, and then I'll report on it, but this Marteell VSOP, as a drink, is only okay. There are many other alcoholic beverages that have a deeper flavor, are more complex,, and have a richer bouquet than this has, It's certainly not bad, but as a drink, it's just ok.


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!

I recently tasted a mid to late 80s VSOP Medallion. It was really quite fine, especially considering the price. I'm not sure about value, but can easily recommend this as a delicious cognac.

Max (Cognac-Expert.com) 2013-01-17

Dear Doris A. Martell DeChane, thanks for your message. Your bottle is first of all a rather old bottle. It's critical to know that Cognac does not not age in bottles, and sometimes wrong storing can even have a negative impact on older cognac bottles. In any case your bottle has value - it is one of the younger cognacs of the house of Martell, still not the youngest, as it's superior to a VS or three star, in the most cases. If you would like to learn more about your bottle, please submit your bottle images at SUBMIT BOTTLE or go to BLOG > YOUR BOTTLE, which is an exchange and marketplace section for collectors of cognac. In any case I recommend you should drink it, rather than selling.

Almost 50 years ago, about 3 months after I married, I purchased a bottle of Martell VSOP Medallion Fine Old Champagne. The reason was to enjoy at my 50th anniversary this 7/6. My maiden name is Martell. Can you tell me anything about it. Thank you, Doris A. Martell DeChane

Martell VSOP Medaillon Old Fine Champagne... The eaux-de-vie come from different growth area, including Grande Champagne and Borderies.... As far as I know, if talking about spirits, Fine Champagne = Grand Champagne + Petit Champagne. No Borderies, isn't it?

Hello, I have recently acquired a boxed Martell VSOP Medaillon bottle and 3 small glasses, un-opened, believed to be from around the 1980's although there is no date on the outside of the set. I would love to know if this is likely to have any value.Many Thanks.

This is mainly my everyday VSOP besides Henny Privilege and it is indeed an excellent after-dinner enjoyment. Best VSOP deal (quality vs price) in town that is the Best Bang For Your Buck ;-)

yeozer 2012-03-24

Hello Eduardo, if the two bottles you have is the same as the picture on this page, the prices I know at retail stores are about USD 45.00 and up, depending on which store you visit. Hope this information helps. Cheers!
