Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac truly is a piece of history. Created back in 1912 by Edouard Martell, the recipe is now well over a century old - and it's one that's truly stood the test of time. An XO quality, Cordon Bleu is now something of legend in the world of Cognac.
It has a distinctive taste that's characterized by a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terror. And of course, the bottle is instantly recognizable. A Cognac of this standard is perfectly presented in such a simplistic bottle - after all, when a drink is of this quality, it's only right that the flavor is allowed to speak for itself.
Cellar Master of Martell, Christophe Valtaud, says of Cordon Bleu: "Here we have a unique Cognac in the XO category. Martell Cordon Bleu is endowed with beautiful complexity and rich aromas, making it a legendary Cognac. Its high proportion of Borderies marks this blend, expanding on its caramelized character with the smoothness of sweet spices, gingerbread, and roasted cocoa beans".
this Martell-CB cognac seemed to be in high demand for its taste (very close to XO) at a slight saving. I had to wait 4 weeks to receive my 2 bottles. Wine Chateau service personnel were all courteous in providing updates (of shipment allocation/delay). I am glad I did not cancel my order. To be honest, if the wait is more than 1 week, next time I would change my order to the Martell XO instead.
Notwithstanding my ranting and raving, I have my Cognac. Next time I will try to work out some way of delivery not requiring signature. When I buy liquor, I do declare that I am over 21!.
I really like the tastes of this cordon bleu cognac I will buy more and more when I need thanks
CB is the best
