Founded in 1715 by Jean Martell, this is the oldest of the major cognac houses and is famed for its delicately fragrant and elegant styles. Grapes are selected 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 smooth and mellow cognac that is a true cocktail of aromas, at once fresh, rounded and woody. The nose has bittersweet softness: lime and liquorice.Crystallised fruit: quince, raisin and plum. Spring undergrowth: Soft, mellow and complex with crystallised-fruit notes. An ample round body and a long finish.
