Martell Cognac

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".

Tasting Notes

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.

Blind tasted Cordon Bleu by Martell: pretty solid

I tasted this one in a blind tasting. Love the after taste, pepper and smooth - love it. A total classic.

A rather spicy Cognac with fruity nose

While the nose is light and fruity, the Cognac itself I would describe as masculine. A heavy Cognac with a slight punch and wooden taste.
The Aftertaste is interesting and long. You can discover fruity apricot notes as well a bit of spices.
Personally, I prefer less bold/heavy Cognacs. However, the Martell XO blend is exceptional together with the bottle design - which is a bit casual. The bottle is great to grab.
People who know the Hennessy XO, should try this Cognac.

Still one of the best Extra Old cognacs of the top4 cognac houses

I tasted Cordon Bleu in a blind tasting, compared to other XO cognacs. I really, really like this very balanced, not too punchy, not too round Cognac. It has been one of my favorite (perhaps THE favorite) blend of the top4 houses. I simply also love the great iconic bottle - very simplistic and understated. I can only recommend this one! I am not aware of a comparable cognac in terms of taste.

Q&A for Martell Cordon Bleu XO

Highly recommended for first time Cognac Drinkers

Lesley 2015-09-14

I was never a Cognac drinker because I find them "too spicy & dry" for my throat and smell too strong.

I took up a brave challenge last night and had a sip of Martell Cordon Bleu. I was pleasantly amazed by its smooth texture(my throat didn't experience the "burning sensation") and it is very aromatic (not pungent at all). High recommended for new drinkers to Cognac :)

This is the best liquor that I ever tasted.

    yeozer 2012-05-21

    I remember when I was a young kid, one of my uncle is always talking about Cordon Bleu. Now I enjoy this excellent Borderies cognac more on the nose than the palate. It is an awesome cognac at a reasonable price and it is highly recommended! It is not easy to obtain in Western Canada; a lot of stores are out of stock and I was told it won't be coming in until about Christmas this year (2012).

        When will the Special Edition 100th Anniversary Centenary come out and can you buy it in Europe?? I hope so.. or will it be a duty free only? that would make it a tough one to purchase for me..

          Just one of my favourite cognacs! will always be. the bottle is awesome, the typical martell signature taste so evident, with its strong Borderies notes. Lovely but rough. In a good way.
