Nose: Orchard fruits, crystallised plums and apples. As well as roasted notes of Mocha coffee, toasted almonds and vetiver.

Palate: An explosion of deliciously fruited, spice notes. Elegance linked to aromatic richness. Well-rounded mellowness. Sustained finish with fruit and spice notes.

The preponderance of Borderies eaux-de-vie gives Martell Cordon Bleu an elegant, mellow and complex character.

Description

Martell Cordon Bleu The Epic Voyage Limited Edition by Pierre Marie Cognac

To celebrate the 2020 festive season, Maison Martell have partnered up with three international artists, who have each re-created one of Martell’s most iconic products as part of a limited edition Christmas collection.

Renowned for his exquisitely detailed designs which fuse references to ancestral craft techniques with contemporary visual codes, artist and ornamentist Pierre Marie reinterpreted one of Maison Martell’s most iconic offerings; Cordon Bleu. This limited edition design is a one of a kind collectors item, to be cherished by the most dedicated of Cognac connoisseurs.

Since its creation in 1912, Martell Cordon Bleu has earned itself an inspiring reputation as a Cognac firm favorite amongst connoisseurs. Its distinctive taste, characterised by a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies, and its timeless bottle design make it an unrivalled classic in the world of Cognac.

Presentation of the bottle

“The vision of the barrels of cognac travelling around the world to far-flung destinations inspired me.”

The design, entitled The Epic Voyage, illustrates the subsequent journey of the vine and the oak around the world. Expressed through motifs of ships, trains and hot-air balloons and include illustrations of red and gold clouds - a traditional Chinese symbol of good fortune. While the Cognac inside boasts multiple gold medal awards, the stunning decanter designed by Pierre Marie is considered as a work of art in its own right. This limited edition is sure to take centre stage amidst even the most extended of Cognac collections.

How to enjoy

Cordon Bleu is the ideal Cognac for special occasions. Enjoy it neat, with a splash of water or on the rocks. Take slow sips to let the tasting notes do the talking. Savour each mouthful and allow your senses to embark on an experience far beyond the realms of the mundane.

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!
