L’or De Jean Martell
Martell is the oldest of the big cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, Martell will soon celebrate its 300 year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715, when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell – approximately 1,6 million 9 liter cases.
L’OR de Jean Martell is an exceptional cognac created from series of unique encounters. The precious union of Grande Champagne and Borderies created a blend of elegance, power and richness. Over 400 extremely rare eaux-de-vie, some over a century old, come together in this prestigious cognac. Served in a hand-crafted crystal decanter, L’OR de Jean Martell keeps this tradition of rare encounters alive, an unrivalled sensory experience to elevate the moment.
It is a veritable effusion of sensations marked by a light, sylph-like quality for all its length. Much like a familiar, melodious symphony of fresh citrus notes, fruit, gingerbread and precious wood, in which the senses answer each other in subtle echoes.
