Martell XO Christian de Portzamparc Exclusive Edition Cognac

Martell XO Cognac Exclusive Architect Edition by Christian de Portzamparc is a special edition by Pritzker award-winning Architect Christian de Portzamparc. The architect is known for buildings such as the Headquarters of the press group “Le Monde”, Hergé museum in Belgium, Hotel Renaissance Wagram in Paris and The City of Music in Paris. This XO Cognac is made only from eaux-de-vie that are at least 6 years old, but typically much older. The blend is a wonderful combination of Martell's signature Cru Borderies Cognacs and Grande Champagne Cognacs. This Architect edition is the second in the series, the first being by Paul Andreu in 2009. Produced in a strictly limited edition, it’s a rare and prestigious piece to own. Truly an authentic collector's item.

A Cognac as exceptional as this can only be the product of a house that knows what it takes to craft brilliance. As a house with over 300 years worth of practice, the Martell estate certainly fits that brief. Prioritizing quality for centuries, every creation is guaranteed to be a product of exceptionality. If ever there was a selection to showcase that expertise, the Martell XO Cognac Exclusive Architect Edition by Christian de Portzamparc is a wonderful example to choose.

Presentation of the bottle

A well-executed design, the decanter is beautiful and outstanding from every angle. With packaging shaped like an arch, it’s a testament to this architect's meticulous eye for design. The shimmering gold captures the color of the Cognac exquisitely, offering a satisfying tease of what’s to come. This is a true show-stopper display that you are going to want to showcase.

How to enjoy

As an XO, this is a wonderfully versatile choice. Enjoy it neat to appreciate the round, fruity flavor. Or, add into your favourite cocktail for an added punch.

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!
