Maison was founded in 1715 by Jean Martell and is the oldest of the high-quality Cognac brands. The Martell X.O. comes from grapes grown in the Grande Champagne region, in a terroir that gives the fruit all its minerality and refinement. Ageing in oak barrels only reinforces the aromas of this cognac and leads to a product of character and style.
This style is reflected in the original vaulted o bottle, which reflects all the charisma that has characterised Martell for over three centuries.

TASTING NOTES OF Martell X.O. :
- View: golden amber with mahogany and dark copper highlights.
- Nose: spicy and spicy scent, notes of black and pink peppers, coriander, fig, walnut and sandalwood.
- Palate: Notes of fig, red fruits and blackcurrant bud. Represents the power and finesse of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, and then gives way to a particularly long and robust final note.
Production: X.O. is the ageing mention indicating that the youngest eau-de-vie used in the blend is at least six years old.
Martell has always used fine-grained oak barrels that release sweet and balanced aromas and transmit vanilla, dried fruit, red fruit, chutney and dried flower aromas to cognac eaux-de-vie.
