Last Wednesday, Martell, one of the oldest cognac houses unveiled its latest product – the Martell VSOP Red Barrels. Known for their elegance and sophistication, Martell cognacs are produced with the use of fine grained oak barrels and double distillation of clear wines without sediments that have become the signature of Martell’s fine taste.
The new Martell MVSOP Red Barrels carries a heightened feature that gives a pivotal experience to the discerning connoisseur. What sets Martell apart from other brands is the full ageing of aux de vie in only red barrels, making it unique and perfectly balance.
Typically crafted from woods between 180 and 200 years old (yes, that old!), these casks are characterised by finer, less pronounced tannins which respect the delicacy of Martell’s clear wines. As the result shows, the aromas developed are more subtle, generous and refined, just like a good cognac should.
For the new MVSOP Aged in Red Barrels, it creates the perfect balance between fruity and spicy woody notes that comes from the time it spends in the red Barrels. Thanks to its finesse, rich fruity notes and delicate aromas, this balance of flavours give the cognac the uniqueness to be paired with delicacies of various cuisines.
The saying that “Age does matter” comes into context because the new Martell MVSOP Red Barrels is truly unique and engages those with a palatable vigour. So call over a few friends and serve them up a good steak or pan mee with a glass of Martell tonight.
For the connoisseurs out there, remember to get a bottle for yourself.
