Pernod Ricard has collaborated with a French artist to launch a new Martell Cordon Bleu Limited Edition “infused with the spirit of generosity, curiosity and creativity that has defined the House of Martell since it was founded in 1715”. Designed to be a gift to celebrate Chinese New Year, the bottle and box design was created in collaboration with French artist Mathilde de l'Ecotais to express the uniqueness of the Cognac, the company said. The design seeks to reflect the spirit and character of Martell.
Martell Cordon Bleu was created in 1912 by Edouard Martell, the great-grandson of the founder. Named after the blue ribbon, which is an international emblem of excellence, it was destined to be one of a kind: a new quality of cognac to be served in the world’s leading hotels and restaurants; a cognac to delight even the most demanding connoisseurs. Remarkable for its richness, elegance and finesse, Martell Cordon Bleu is a masterful blend of more than 100 eaux-de-vie. Its lusciously full, floral aromas are the result of rare eaux-de-vie from the small Borderies cru in the Cognac region of France. Emblematic of the Martell style, Martell Cordon Bleu is not only an authentic expression of the Borderies, but also a symbol of Maison Martell’s savoir-faire and attachment to its terroir.
- A deep, golden copper colour.
- Vibrant, rich and complex, with aromas of orchard fruit including candied plum and apple, harmonising with roasted notes of mocha coffee, toasted almonds and vetiver. A subtle spicy dimension can be detected in aromas of candied orange, cinnamon, honey and beeswax.
- An exceptionally rounded, mellow sensation on the palate further enhanced by the preponderance of Borderies eaux-de-vie, which lend elegance and complexity. An impressively long finish characterised by notes of fruit and spices.
Neat or with a splash of water, Martell Cordon Bleu is a natural choice for special occasions.
