Colour: Amber, with mahogany tone.
Nose: Firstly, ‘Tarte Tatin’ notes with sweet spices as cinnamon. Then fine notes of dried fruits as apricot, grapes, almonds.
Palate: Well rounded mellowness. A vivid start with blackcurrant notes, then the very same dried fruits aromas (grapes, fig, nuts). Elegance & balance, sustained finish, rich and luscious with expressive notes of candied orange peels.
Enjoyed neat or on the rocks, the Martell Cordon Bleu Extra is a unique and intense experience. For connoisseurs of Martell Cordon Bleu who wish to reignite their curiosity and discover an extra dimension of a legendary cognac, as well as for lovers of the finest things in life, it represents a rewarding discovery – an exciting new expression of an icon.
A complex blend of over 150 eau-de- vie aged between 10 to 25 years, Martell Cordon Bleu was introduced to the world by Edouard Martell in 1912 after two years of crafting and refinement. The delicate and fruity hallmark of the Borderies has become the signature of Martell, which can be summed up in three words: elegance, balance, and complexity. Its timeless bottle design make it a classic, unrivalled in the world of cognac.
As its name suggests, the Extra is an extraordinary reinterpretation of the Martell Cordon Bleu that invites connoisseurs to explore a classic and discover intriguing new dimensions. The Extra, like its legendary predecessor, is distilled using the renowned Martell method – double distillation of exclusively clear wines to reveal with exceptional purity and finesse the specific aromas of each terroir. But while the Martell Cordon Bleu is notable for the influence of rare grapes from the Borderies region, the Extra benefits from the addition of a generous portion of very old Borderies spirits. Thanks to this vivid exploration of cognac-making, Martell made it possible to experience intense candied fruit aromas in a luscious cognac of remarkable roundness and elegance.
