Martell Cordon Blue was created by Edouard Martell in 1912 and travelled around the world as a real ambassador of the French “art de vivre”. It is considered a classic, unequalled in the world of cognac.
“Here, we have a unique cognac in the XO category. With eaux-de-vie aged for between 10 and 25 years, well beyond the regulatory six, Martell Cordon Bleu is endowed with beautiful complexity and rich aromas, making it a legendary cognac. Its high proportion of Borderies marks this blend, expanding on its caramelised character with the smoothness of sweet spices, gingerbread and roasted cocoa beans.”
Benoît Fil, Cellar Master
