MARTELL CORDON BLEU AND MARTELL CORDON BLEU EXTRA WINS GOLD OUTSTANDING AWARDS AT INTERNATIONAL WINE AND SPIRIT COMPETITION (IWSC)

The House of Martell is proud to announce that for the 2018 edition, the judges of the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) awarded Gold Outstanding awards, the highest distinction to both Martell Cordon Bleu and Martell Cordon Bleu Extra.

The IWSC is setting international standard for quality remaining unique in the world of drinks competitions: in addition to an organoleptic judgment, all entries undergo chemical analysis.

With 2 Gold Outstanding awards showcasing quality of the highest order, the House of Martell demonstrates its savoir-faire in crafting the finest cognacs with passion and generosity.

An icon since its creation in 1912, Martell Cordon Bleu is a unique cognac in the XO category, it is endowed with beautiful complexity and rich aromas, making it a legendary cognac. An extraordinarily complex blend of more than a hundred eaux-de-vie, Martell Cordon Bleu is marked by its high proportion of Borderies which expands on its caramelized character with the smoothness of sweet spices

Martell Cordon Bleu Extra is an extra-ordinary reinterpretation of the iconic Martell Cordon Bleu: it invites to explore a classic and discover intriguing new dimensions. Martell Cordon Bleu Extra offers a more intense version of the legendary original, adding even more Borderies (the rarest cru of Cognac) for an even rounder interpretation.

ABOUT THE HOUSE OF MARTELL
Martell, the oldest of the great cognac houses, was founded by Jean Martell in 1715 at the height of French art de vivre, when gastronomy, taste and craftsmanship were celebrated and enjoyed with style. These became the three pillars of the House of Martell and remain intrinsic to the Martell vision today. For three centuries, Martell has produced, exported and marketed cognacs which are recognized worldwide for their outstanding quality and finesse, obtained through double distillation of exclusively clear wines and aging in fine-grained oak casks.
