To celebrate brand’s 300th anniversary, the House of Martell has released the Martell Assemblage Exclusif de 3 Millesimes Cognac. A lavish new structure is unique blend of three exceptional eaux-de-vie; Grande Champagne, Fins Bois and Borderies, each one evokes a different period in the House’s history according to its aromatic profile. Grande Champagne: character. This powerful, structured eau-de-vie is emblematic of the 18th century. For Benoît Fil, this structure and “build” is symbolic of Jean Martell’s determination to give his House a strong foundation.
Fins Bois: aerial lightness. A smooth, delicate eau-de-vie with great subtlety, evoking Martell’s rise to prominence in the 19th century. It was the age when Martell won the approval of connoisseurs the world over and became one of the great ambassadors of French art de vivre.
Borderies: silky roundness. The smallest terroir is also the most precious of the Charentes region, and its hallmark has become the signature of Martell. This eau-de-vie calls to mind the Belle Epoque and the beginnings of the 20th century, when the famous Cordon Bleu was created.
This delight comes in a beautiful wooden casket decorated with a three-tone inlay, which symbolises the harmony of the 3 eaux-de-vie that make up the blend. And the bottle itself is a faithful reproduction of the traditional montre flasks that were used to present eaux-de-vie samples to the Cellar Master. Martell Assemblage Exclusif de 3 Millesimes Cognac is limited to only 3,708 bottles worldwide.
