MARTELL CORDON BLEU LIMITED EDITION BY MATHIAS KISS
Maison Martell launched an unprecedented collaboration with four international creative talents. Hailing from diverse domains and cultures, they are united by a spirit of audacity which led them to forge their own path to success – something they share with Maison Martell and its founder Jean Martell.
Mathias Kiss, who started out as a craftsman restoring historic buildings before achieving renown in contemporary art, transformed iconic Martell Cordon Bleu with his trademark mix of tradition and modernity. Reinterpreted by the artist’s avant-garde vision, antique marble becomes a precious motif in gold and blue to emphasize the iconic status of this cognac.
Martell Cordon Bleu was created in 1912 by Edouard Martell, the great-grandson of the founder. Named after the blue ribbon, which is an international emblem of excellence, it was destined to be one of a kind: a new quality of cognac to be served in the world’s leading hotels and restaurants; a cognac to delight even the most demanding connoisseurs. Remarkable for its richness, elegance and finesse, Martell Cordon Bleu is a masterful blend of more than 100 eaux-de-vie. Its lusciously full, floral aromas are the result of rare eaux-de-vie from the small Borderies cru in the Cognac region of France. Emblematic of the Martell style, Martell Cordon Bleu is not only an authentic expression of the Borderies, but also a symbol of Maison Martell’s savoir-faire and attachment to its terroir.
- A deep, golden copper colour.
- Vibrant, rich and complex, with aromas of orchard fruit including candied plum and apple, harmonising with roasted notes of mocha coffee, toasted almonds and vetiver. A subtle spicy dimension can be detected in aromas of candied orange, cinnamon, honey and beeswax.
- An exceptionally rounded, mellow sensation on the palate further enhanced by the preponderance of Borderies eaux-de-vie, which lend elegance and complexity. An impressively long finish characterised by notes of fruit and spices.
Neat or with a splash of water, Martell Cordon Bleu is a natural choice for special occasions.
