This fine and exquisite "eau-de-vie" is created from an uncommon and old grape variety "the Folle Blanche". The "Folle Blanche" is the exceptionally unique cognac grape surrendered after the assault of phylloxera in the late nineteenth century. The "Folle Blanche" gives unfathomably exquisite, sensitive and perfumed cognacs.
Benoît Fil, Martell Cellar Master, describes this blend :" a unique cognac in the XO category, Martell Cordon Bleu is beautifully complex and rich in aromas. The Borderies expands its smooth caramelised character, tones of sweet spices, gingerbread and roasted cocoa beans. "
The legendary Cordon Bleu was conceived by Edouard Martell in 1912. This blend was aged in oak casks . The unusual use of Eaux de Vie from Borderies, refined yet fruity, is the signature of Martell. The bottle and label reflects Edouard Martell’s 1912 original design.
Le Cognac is dedicated to further the presence of the small Cognac Houses in the global market. It is present in the USA through its participation in Cognac Inc, a licensed importer of high-end Cognacs and animates Club Cognac, a worldwide network of Cognac lovers and sommeliers.
