Product Info: L'Or de Jean Martell is an exceptional and complex cognac which expresses the myriad nuances of over 400 rare and precious eaux-de-vie, some of which have aged for more than a century. It is distinguished by the encounter of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and the Borderies, the smallest and most exclusive terroir in the Cognac region, which create a blend of elegance, richness and power. The jewel bottle, whose shape evokes a drop in which the cognac is enclosed and protected, is the work of master craftsmen from the prestigious Manufacture de Cristal de Sevres. L'Or offers a perfect balance between rich aromas and power, yet it remains a model of harmony and the perfect expression of this cognac house's philosophy.
Color: Intense amber with shimmering mahogany highlights. Nose: Citrus notes like bergamot and orange peel, the full fruit harmony of dark berries and blackcurrants, the gingerbread notes of clove and cinnamon embraced by vanilla, and the scent of oriental forests with its woody notes of myrrh, undergrowth and rancio. Taste: A silky-smooth and subtle attack is followed by richer, more substantial flavours. Harmonious notes of blackcurrant and woodland undergrowth encounter tones of gingerbread and orange peel. Lond-aged Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie bring strenght and structure, prolonged into an exquisite, lingering finish.
Brand/Product History: Martell, the oldest of the great Cognac houses, was founded by Jean Martell in 1715 at the height of French Art de Vivre, when gastronomy, taste and craftsmanship were celebrated and enjoyed with style. These became the three pillars of the House of Martell and remain intrinsic to the Martell vision today. Since 1715, Martell has produced, exported and marketed cognacs which are recognized worldwide for their outstanding quality and finesse, obtained through double distillation of exclusively clear wines and aging in fine-grained oak barrels.
