Eye: Deep, golden copper.

Nose: A rich, lively and complex nose. Notes of sweet orchard fruit such as apple and candied plum are present, dancing harmoniously with tones of mocha coffee, toasted almonds and vetiver.

Palate: A full bodied, mellow sensation that is well complimented by the Borderies' eaux-de-vie which devotes elegance and complexity to the blend. A well sustained finish, leaving notes of fruit and spice on the palate.

Description

Cordon Bleu The Legendary Union Edition by Pierre Marie

The legendary XO Cognac Martell Cordon Bleu, is internationally renowned for its excellence. For the 2020 festive season, Maison Martell is bringing back its Martell Exclusives initiative. It has invited the creative talent of Pierre Marie to design a unique bottle for this emblematic Cognac as part of a limited-edition gifting collection.

First created in 1912 by Edouard Martell, Cordon Bleu is considered an iconic classic, unrivalled in the world of Cognac. Produced using more than 150 different eaux-de-vie from a range of terroirs, but dominated by that of the Borderies, and aged for at least six years this spirit has a distinctive taste that remains many connoisseurs’ favourite expression of Martell.

Presentation of the bottle:

Pierre Marie is an acclaimed artist and ornamentalist who is known for his exquisitely detailed designs which take inspiration from ancestral craft techniques and contemporary visual codes.

Pierre’s design for the Cordon Bleu bottle is accompanied by a specially composed poem, entitled The Vine and the Oak. The intricate and decorative work of leaves and shoots in rich shades of red and gold represents the “love affair” between the vine and the oak from which Cognac is born.

The artist’s work for this iconic Cognac was influenced not only by its history but also its creation. A narrative escorts the design in the form of two fables, written in the tradition of French lyric poetry which explores the romance between the vine and the oak that has been so beautifully illustrated by Pierre.

How to enjoy:

Ideal for special occasions, Martell recommends this Cognac be served either straight, diluted with a dash of water or on the rocks.

Interesting facts:

Created in 1912, this Cognac travelled around the world as a real ambassador of the French “art de vivre”. It has seen many significant moments in history: the Versailles contract in 1920, the inauguration of Queen Mary 1936, Orient Express in 1986 and the original bottle also appeared in films like Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now!

Awards:

Martell Cordon Bleu received a Gold Medal in the XO category at the International Spirits Challenge in 2018.

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!
