Martell XO

18 August 2011 4 Comments

Martell XO Suprême (Extra Old) is a remarkable combination of the main four cognac growth areas (Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies en Fins Bois). Its powerful taste is distinctive, with a long lingering after-taste.
It is fully aged in MARTELL‘s most-coveted private cellars, Paradis and Purgatoire.

Rare, exclusive and reserved for connoisseurs are just a few of the many adjectives preceding Martell Extra’s brand history which was created at the beginning of the 19th century. Today, Martell Extra reveals itself under the signature Martell Creation Grand Extra, as a testimony to the creative spirit of Jean Martell.

Martell Cellar Master, Bruno Lemoine, perpetuates Martell creativity with the superb blending of Martell Creation Grand Extra. Sophisticated yet straightforward, it is a true reflection of the asserted personality drawn by eaux-de-vie carefully selected in our Creation Cellar.

Martell Creation also pays tribute to the bottle designer, Serge Mansau, who was instrumental in bringing the triple-arch shaped design with architectural inspiration. Resolutely contemporary, this decanter is a fusion of harmonious, pure lines and richly-crafted decoration, the natural expression of Martell’s heritage and creativity.

It’s a cognac with a rich character, perfect for special occasions.

The tasting notes of Martell XO Supreme are:

The color: amber-gold.
The fragrance: ginger bread, dried fruit, orange marmalade and rancio.
The taste: smooth and complex flavor, this carries the dried fruit with a vanilla and oak dominate.
The after-taste: great lenght.
The origin: Grande Champagne, Petit Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois.
Age: 40 to 45 years old.
The price: 100 – 150 dollars.
