Each one-off, individually signed piece requires several hours of painstaking work by skilled artisans.
Martell Chanteloup Perspective, A supreme demonstration of the Cellar Master’s art of blending, it is also the essence of the Martell style, in which the personalities and complexities of different crus ideally complement each other. An outstanding cognac with luscious notes of honey, peach, apricot, fig and dried fruit, and a lovely lingering finish. An exceptional blend of 450 rare eaux-de-vie drawn from the four most prestigious cognac crus.
Martell, the oldest of the great Cognac houses, was founded by Jean Martell in 1715 at the height of French Art de Vivre, when gastronomy, taste and craftsmanship were celebrated and enjoyed with style. These became the three pillars of the House of Martell and remain intrinsic to the Martell vision today. Since 1715, Martell has produced, exported and marketed cognacs which are recognized worldwide for their outstanding quality and finesse, obtained through double distillation of exclusively clear wines and aging in fine-grainedoak barrels.
Color: A rich amber colour with shimmering highlights.
Nose: Luscious aromas of honey, vine peach and apricot, complemented by notes of fig, almonds and walnuts.
Taste: Intense fruity aromas predominate amid an impression of fullness, balance, power and elegance, which continues into a remarkably long finish.
For the House icon, Martell Cordon Bleu, renowned as a rich expression of the rare Borderies terroir, Mathilde de L'Ecotais overlaid an image of grapes and vines leaves with sweeping circular brush strokes to evoke the famously round, generous flavours of this legendary cognac. The Martell Cordon Bleu bottle, transformed by sumptuous tones of gold and blue, is presented on a pedestal with a luxurous case, emphasizing its iconic status.
L'Or de Jean Martell is the precisous union of over 400 extremely rare eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and Borderies, some over a century old, served in a hand-crafted crystal decanter.
Founded in 1715, Martell is the oldest of the great Cognac Houses. The elegance, complexity and balance of Martell style are the result of a unique savoir-faire: the distillation of clear wines only and the ageing of its eaux-de-vie in fine-grain oak barrels.
