When planning to pair cognac with a meal, it is a good rule of thumb to progress from the youngest cognacs to the oldest. This will ensure the palate is not unduly overwhelmed too early in the dining experience.
The same reasoning applies when it comes to pairing cognacs with the all important meat courses.
Lighter meats pair better with medium-bodied cognacs. A main of veal, quail or chicken supreme, for example, will match well with Martell Cordon Bleu.
Pair older cognacs, particularly those from the Grande Champagne cru, with more powerful meats and game that capture the intensity of the cognac. A succulent beef tenderloin, or pheasant, venison and guinea fowl, will find its match with a Martell XO.
