Launched in 1992, L'Or de Jean Martell is packaged in a hand-blown crystal decanter with hand-painted shoulders and gold plated stopper. The waves on the decanter are inspired by the undulating cognac vineyards. The bottle and jewel case-like gift box have a combined weight of 7kg.
L'Or de Jean Martell is a blend of some 400 extremely rare eaux-de-vie predominantly from the Grande Champagne area but with a high percentage of old Borderies, some drawn from the company's precious Le Paradis cellar with the oldest distilled in 1871.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 04/05/2015

Appearance:

Clear, deep golden amber with burnished copper glints.

Aroma:

Complex with caramel covered roasted nuts (almond and walnut), honey and dried fruity notes - particularly candied orange, backed apple and prune. Sweet spices (cinnamon, cumin and gingerbread) and faint violet blossom.

Taste:

Mouth enveloping, complex, spicy, rich and fruity with cinnamon, nutmeg, candied and dried fruit, raisins, prune, walnut and that rancio note to which great cognacs aspire.

Aftertaste:

Long, lingering and slightly bitter finish with prune, blackened fruitcake and grilled nuts.

Overall:

A huge rich and heavy cognac suited to enjoying with a cigar.
