About this Cognac:
With its distinctive, arch-shaped bottle, Martell XO is a powerful symbol of inspiration - a testimony to Jean Martell's visionary spirit. Combining the elegance of the Borderies with the power of the Grande Champagne terroirs, Martell is an outstanding XO bearing the hallmark of the Martell style.

Made predominately from Grand Champagne and Petite eaux-de-vie with the remaining eaux-de-vie coming from the Borderies growing cru. It is aged up to thirty five years in French Tronçais oak barrels.

Tasting notes

A spicy, rich crescendo starting with the mellow elegance of the Borderies, followed by the intensity and finesse typical of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie.

Color: Golden amber with dark copper and mahogany highlights.

Nose: 
Ground spice (black pepper, coriander) and red berries.
Rich fruit flavors: fig chutney and compote, almonds and walnuts.
Beeswax and sandalwood

Palate: 
Rounded and fruity on the palate (notes of fig and walnut) followed by the characteristic power and finesse of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne.
A long and silken finish.

Ideal for special occasions. Best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water.

96-100 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Aromas are ripe and melony, then turn deep with subtle hints of walnut, butter cream, oak and marzipan—a sensational bouquet. Right from palate entry the fruit concentration is perfectly balanced by a resiny, cheesy oakiness that blossoms at midpalate along with succulent tastes of raisins, vanilla and butterscotch. Finishes stately, almost chunky. The touch of rancio in the aftertaste puts it over the top. Gorgeous."
