Description

Martell Cordon Bleu XO Intense Heat Limited Edition Cognac

The Martell Cordon Bleu XO Intense Heat Limited Edition Cognac has been crafted as a wonderful twist on the much-loved Cordon Bleu expression. Produced specifically for the 2017 Lunar New Year, this release represents the first Cognac finished in heat-toasted wooden casks at the House of Martell. The result is a blend of wonderfully woody, nutty and spicy aromas, drifting into a luxurious palate.

Only produced in a limited quantity, this Cordon Bleu edition is presented with a dark blue label embellished with copper-red details, representing the fiery charring of the barrels. A great Cognac, and one that will be well-sought after, both by collectors and those who are lovers of the iconic Martell Cordon Bleu.

“The Cordon Bleu Extra is very elegant... 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 ribbon. The navy blue label have been stamped with Jean Martell’s signature, while the neck of the bottle bears a blue medallion commemorating the year 1715 - the birth of the House of Martell. It comes in a matching presentation box, decorated with the imagery of a smouldering cask. 

How to Enjoy Martell Cordon Bleu XO Intense Heat Cognac 

This expressive Cognac is best enjoyed neat and at room temperature. It also makes an excellent pairing for fine cigars.

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!
