1 September 2013 2 Comments

MARTELL_VS_COGNACMartell is a well known name in the cognac, Martell cognac produced since 1715, long before other highly respected houses as ge-Courvoisier (late 18th century), Hennessy (1765) and Remy Martin (1724).

Martell VS cognac is aged from 5 to 7 years. (The French law requires a minimum of 2-1/2 years.) Martell VS is made from a mixture of Eaux de Vie from the four major regions of Cognac: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Bois Borderies and Fins Bois.

Martell VS is nicely balanced with a not unpleasant woody flavor, a little sharp, but very tasty.

The tasting notes of the Martell VS:

The color: bright brass.
The fragrance: sweet, fragrant and woody.
The taste: soft, fruit, toasted wood, vanilla and a slight taste of nuts.
The after-taste: a light burning mid flavor, but finishes smooth and slightly sweet.
Price: $25
The price / quality ratio: a 7.

    I have two very well preserved unopened bottles of Martel cordon bleu 1950 era. Wondering if I should open them and enjoy, never really had cognac before, or if they are better served as a gift or sold to a true cognac aficionado?
