THE TRUE ELEGANCE LIES IN PERFECT BALANCE. BE CURIOUS.
True to its spirit of curiosity, the House of Martell is further exploring the ageing dimension of its savoir-faire with the launch of an outstanding new cognac. Martell VSOP Aged In Red Barrels. Like all Martell cognacs, Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels is matured exclusively in casks of fine-grained oak from France's ancient Troncais forest.
Uniquely, for Martell VSOP Aged In Red Barrels, the Martell Cellar Master selected oak casks already used to age eaux-de-vie, where the influence of tannins is even less pronounced. Known as "futs roux" (red barrels) owing to the reddish tinge of their wood, these precious barrels have reached the perfect stage of maturation for both the oak and the eaux-de-vie, thus allowing for an ideally balanced exchange between the two.
Not only are they able to fully express their natural fruit aromas, but these blend harmoniously with subtle woody overtones from the red barrels of fine grained oak, resulting in an exceptionally rich and refined cognac that is an authentic expression of the Martell style.
NOSE: Intense aromas of ripe yellow fruit - mirabelle plum, greengage, apricot and vine peach.
PALATE: Luscious fruit otes fuse with hints of wood and soft spices, providing a perfect balance of aromas.
FINISH: Smooth, long-lasting outh feel.
