Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac truly is a piece of history. Created back in 1912 by Edouard Martell, the recipe is now well over a century old - and it's one that's truly stood the test of time. An XO quality, Cordon Bleu is now something of legend in the world of Cognac.
It has a distinctive taste that's characterised by a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terror. And of course, the bottle is instantly recognizable. A Cognac of this standard is perfectly presented in such a simplistic bottle - after all, when a drink is of this quality, it's only right that the flavor is allowed to speak for itself.
Cellar Master of Martell, Christophe Valtaud, says of Cordon Bleu: "Here we have a unique Cognac in the XO category. Martell Cordon Bleau is endowed with beautiful complexity and rich aromas, making it a legendary Cognac. Its high proportion of Borderies marks this blend, expanding on its caramelized character with the smoothness of sweet spices, gingerbread, and roasted cocoa beans".

The Cordon Bleus taste is dominated by the eaux-de-vie from the Borderies region. On the nose: Floral and elegant. On the palate: A round and smooth cognac, rather masculine, with some hints of fruit and wood. The finish is long and satisfying.
Martell is the oldest of the big cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, Martell will soon 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, 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. 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!
