Discover Martell Vs Cognac 750ml:

Martell Vs Cognac is a premium French cognac from the renowned Martell house. This cognac is made from a blend of Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard grapes, which are carefully selected and distilled in copper pot stills. The result is a smooth and complex spirit with a rich, fruity aroma and a smooth, mellow finish.

On the nose, Martell Vs Cognac has a complex bouquet of ripe fruits, including apricot, peach, and plum, as well as hints of vanilla, honey, and oak. On the palate, it is smooth and mellow, with a hint of spice and a long, lingering finish.

Martell Vs Cognac is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks, or as an ingredient in classic cocktails such as the Sidecar or the French 75. It is also a great accompaniment to desserts, such as crème brûlée or chocolate mousse.

Producer Notes: Martell

Martell is a French drinks producer that specializes in producing high-quality cognac. The company was founded in 1715 by Jean Martell in the town of Cognac, France. Since then, Martell has become one of the most well-known and respected cognac producers in the world.

Martell produces a range of cognacs, including VS, VSOP, and XO. Each of these cognacs is made using a unique blend of eaux-de-vie (distilled wine) that has been aged for a specific amount of time. The VS cognac is aged for at least two years, while the VSOP is aged for at least four years. The XO cognac is aged for at least 10 years, giving it a rich and complex flavor.

In addition to their cognacs, Martell also produces a range of other drinks, including liqueurs and brandies. One of their most famous liqueurs is the Cordon Bleu, which is made using a blend of cognacs that have been aged for at least 20 years. This liqueur has a rich and complex flavor, with notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak.

Martell is also known for their limited edition cognacs, which are released periodically. These cognacs are made using rare and unique eaux-de-vie, and are often aged for longer periods of time than their regular cognacs. Some of their most famous limited edition cognacs include the Martell Creation Grand Extra, which was released in 2005 to celebrate the company’s 300th anniversary, and the Martell Premier Voyage, which was released in 2012 to celebrate the company’s first shipment of cognac to China in 1858.

Overall, Martell is a highly respected drinks producer that is known for their high-quality cognacs and liqueurs. Their products are enjoyed by connoisseurs around the world, and their limited edition releases are highly sought after by collectors.

Cognac Varieties

Cognac is a kind of brandy named after the town of Cognac in the French province of Charente-Maritime. Wine from the neighboring wine-growing area, Charente and Maritime, is used to make this liqueur.

Cognac production is governed by the French appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designation, with certain production techniques and naming criteria that must be followed in order to maintain AOC status. Ugni blanc, often known as Saint-Émilion in the region, is the most commonly planted of the grapes on the list. Two distillations in copper pot stills are required, as is an aging period of at least two years in French oak barrels from the Limousin or Tronçais regions of France. While cognac develops in the same manner as whiskies and wines do in barrels, the majority of cognacs spend much more time "on the wood" than the statutory minimum amount of time.

Cognac has often humorously been described as "nearly undrinkable" because of the dryness, acidity, and thinness of the white wine used in the production of cognac. Despite this, the wine is ideal for distillation and maturing. A limited number of grape varietals are permitted to be used in its production. For a wine to be deemed a genuine cru, it must contain at least 90 percent Ugni blanc as its primary grape. It is necessary to ferment for 2–3 weeks after the grapes have been crushed, during which time the region's natural, wild yeasts transform the sugar into alcohol; neither sugar nor sulfur may be added. The resultant wine has about 7 to 8 percent alcohol at this stage.

Once the distilling process is complete, it is aged in Limousin oak barrels for a minimum of two years before it may be sold to the general population. It is usually placed in barrels at an alcohol by volume level of about 70%. As the cognac interacts with the wood barrel and the surrounding air, it evaporates at a rate of about 3 percent per year, losing both alcohol and water over a period of time. This occurrence is referred to as "la portion des anges," which translates as "the angels' share" in the local language. When a cognac is aged for more than 10 years in an oak barrel, the alcohol level falls to 40 percent by volume. Once moved to huge glass bottles called bonbonnes, the cognac is kept for future blending purposes. Because oak barrels lose their ability to provide flavor after four or five decades, so aging them for extended periods of time may not be helpful.
