L’Or de Jean Martell is an exceptional and complex cognac which expresses the myriad nuances of over 400 rare and precious eaux-de-vie, some of which have aged for more than a century. It is distinguished by the encounter of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and the Borderies, the smallest and most exclusive terroir in the Cognac region, which create a blend of elegance, richness and power.
The jewel bottle, whose shape evokes a drop in which the cognac is enclosed and protected, is the work of master craftsmen from the prestigious Manufacture de Cristal de Sèvres.
The Color – Intense amber with shimmering mahogany highlights.
The Aroma – Citrus notes like bergamot and orange peel, the full-fruit harmony of dark berries and blackcurrants, the gingerbread notes of clove and cinnamon embraced by vanilla, and the scent of oriental forests with its woody notes of myrrh, undergrowth and rancio.
The Taste – A silky-smooth and subtle attack is followed by richer, more substantial flavours. Harmonious notes of blackcurrant and woodland undergrowth encounter tones of gingerbread and orange peel. Long-aged Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie bring strength and structure, prolonged into an exquisite, lingering finish.
