Founded in 1715 by Jean Martell, Martell is the oldest of the major cognac houses and is famed for its delicately fragrant and elegant styles. Grapes are selcted from the four finest crus of the Charente region, Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. It is the dominant influence of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies region that characterises Martell's unique style.
A cognac to enjoy neat, either as a long drink (mixed with ginger ale or tonic water, for example) or in a cocktail. A fresh, harmonious cognac of vigorous character. Light gold with a rich nose that holds fruit and spice notes framed by fresh citrus, fresh pear and saffron. Woody notes from the fine-grained oak cask with a pleasant freshness and a velvety texture.
