Maison Martell has unveiled a new collection L’Or de Jean Martell – Réserve du Château, with the launch of Château de Chanteloup. The new series is the brand’s foray in the ultra-prestige Cognac category.
Moving forward, each year the house will release a new luxury cognac in partnership with a prestigious French château. The first release pays homage to the Martell family’s historic estate in France, Château de Chanteloup.
Crafted by Martell cellar master Christophe Valtaud, Réserve du Château de Chanteloup is made from over 1,400 eaux-de-vie selected from the four terroirs in the Cognac region. The Cognac aged in 300-year-old fine-grained oak barrels, sourced from France’s ancient forests, which impart a unique character to this exceptional cognac.
L’Or de Jean Martell – Réserve du Château de Chanteloup offers notes of iris, wild carnation, and honeysuckle that merge into sweet, rich aromas of red and black fruit, notably cherry and blackcurrant, heightened by a hint of spice.
The Cognac comes in a hand-crafted marquetry wooden cabinet made of high quality materials reminiscent of the French art de vivre and golden age. The crystal decanter was made in collaboration with Baccarat with the goal of evoking a single, pure drop of cognac, perfectly complementing the richness and refinement of the blend within. The neck of the decanter is embellished with 19-carat gold and rests on a gilded pedestal.
Just 1,000 crystal decanters of Martell L’Or Reserve du Château de Chanteloup will be made available globally starting the week of February 26 and features an SRP of $1,500. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
