For me, this is the quintessence of Martell cognacs. With the body of the Borderies and the structure of Grande Champagne, L’OR offers a perfect balance between rich aromas and power. It is blended using over 400 extremely rare eaux-de-vie, yet it remains a model of harmony and the perfect expression of this cognac house's philosophy.
Christophe Valtaud, Cellar Master
L'OR de Jean Martell is an exceptional cognac created from series of unique encounters. The precious union of Grande Champagne and Borderies created a blend of elegance, power and richness. Over 400 extremely rare eaux-de-vie, some over a century old, come together in this prestigious cognac. Served in a hand-crafted crystal decanter, L'OR de Jean Martell keeps this tradition of rare encounters alive, an unrivalled sensory experience to elevate the moment.
A veritable effusion of sensations marked by a light, sylph-like quality for all its length. Much like a familiar, melodious symphony of fresh citrus notes, fruit, gingerbread and precious wood, in which the senses answer each other in subtle echoes.
Deep amber with hints of shimmering mahogany.
The freshness of oriental notes: Bergamot and orange peel.
Full-fruit harmony of dark berries and blackcurrants (bud, leaf and flower). Gingerbread notes: Clove and cinnamon embraced by sweet vanilla.
Oriental forests: Woody notes of myrrh, undergrowth and rancio.
Silky-smooth and subtle attack, followed by richer, more substantial flavours.
Harmonious notes of blackcurrant and woodland undergrowth encounter tones of gingerbread and orange peel.
The Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie bring strength and structure.
An exquisite, lingering finish or “peacock’s tail” effect.
An exceptional cognac to savour neat, for a sensory experience like no other.
