A true icon, Martell has been producing some of France’s best-loved Cognacs since its founding by Jean Martell more than three centuries ago, from its accessibly priced VS to the big-hitting L’Or de Jean Martell collection, which blends some of the house’s oldest and rarest eaux-de-vies.


Cordon Bleu Cognac

70cl / 40%

This flagship XO was first bottled by Edouard Martell in 1912 and has become both a favourite of Cognac drinkers as well as a reference point for the brand in the years since. Its blend of more than 100 eaux-de-vie contains a significant proportion from the legendary Borderies region of Cognac – a hallmark of Martell’s distinctive flavour profile – and ranges from ten to 25 years old, bringing both elegance and complexity.

Tasting notes

by Mike Gibson, The Whisky Exchange

    • An elegant nose of walnut and tart red fruit gives way to plum, candied cherry and frangipane on the palate, with a characteristically luscious finish full of Parma violets.
