Martell Cognac

The Martell XO  Extra Old Cognac is a delightful offering from Martell, the oldest of the large Cognac houses.  It's truly complex, the flavors created from the blend of the premier cru, Grande Champagne, and the smoothness of the Borderies terroir.  A real masterpiece of blending - first the aromas tease your senses, and then the palate thrills with delicious texture, richn depth, yet manages to remain elegant throughout.

The presentation is also of great quality, coming in a decanter that wouldn't be out of place displayed within the finest of drink collections.  And the excellence of this Cognac has been well noted by experts within the industry.  It's recently been awarded the Gold Medal in the XO Ultra Premium Category at the 2017 Cognac Masters.

Q&A for Martell XO Extra Old

Rue 2012-12-25

My two friends and I drink the whole bottle of the martrll xo. it was really good coganc. Love the color and the spice, smoothness. We open the hennessy xo and compared both I found that the hennessy xo have a more kicks. I personally like the martell xo better than the hennessy xo, my friends has mix opinion. Maybe the martell was from 2008 and the hennessy xo from 2012. We have a great time in my back yard after the night's over only half of the hennessy xo left. :))Rue

      Fantastic cognac! Like all the Martell cognacs it has this Borderies punch in the end.. hmm.. Fine nose, Martell is just on a different planet with this blend. If you compare the martell XO with the XOs of Courvoisier, Hennessy or Remy Martin: Clear winner.

Covering only 4,000 hectares, the region is located on a plateau comprising clay and flint stones that have resulted from the decomposition of the limestone found in the area. Thanks to the plateau, the exposure Read full article...
