Martell Cordon Bleu
The secret of the Martell Cordon Beu cognac lies in the harmonious blending of eaux-de-vie from different districts. To blend the Cordon Bleu the master blender selects older eaux-de-vie from the four best Cognac districts.
Many of these eaux de vie are stored in a dark, quiet basement for more than a generation. They are regularly reviewed and tasted by the chief taster.
Borderies is the smallest district in the Cognac region, Martell buys each year 60% of annual production Borderies. These eaux-de-vie are the heart of Cordon Bleu. Grande and Petite Champagne are added for strength and finesse, along with some excellent Fins Bois.
