A photograph of history, Martell Premier Voyage transcends time and reflects the legacy passed on over 300 years. As a limited edition, it is precious and ephemeral… Powerful, expressive and complex.
Christophe Valtaud, Cellar Master
In a celebration like no other, Cellar Master Benoit Fil has traced the footsteps of Jean Martell, piecing together the story of an exceptional and visionary spirit, 300 years later.
Using his original correspondence, Fil constructed a map of Jean Martell’s key suppliers from 1735 to 1742, returning to the very roots of the House.
Visiting winegrowers just as Jean Martell did generations before him, Fil met with the winegrowing families whose ancestors had originally supplied the brand’s founder.
From this remarkable journey, Fil identified 18 exceptional eaux de vie - 17 from Grande Champagne and 1 from the Borderies, to create Martell Premier Voyage. An exclusive cognac, crafted to celebrate 300-years of excellence, and the perfect homage to the visionary spirit of Jean Martell.
A distinctive new blend, where power and depth are provided by the eaux de vie from Grande Champagne, and refined balance offered by the exclusive Borderies region, the hallmark of Martell.
All masterfully blended and aged in barrels made from the oak of a 300 year-old tree, specially sourced from the forest of les Bertranges in France.
Powerful, expressive and complex, Martell Premier Voyage is a masterful blend of 18 remarkable eaux-de-vie, including some of the oldest of the House.
The initial nose has very generous notes of candied peel, blackcurrant, honey and gingerbread.
Swirling brings out the full elegance of old walnuts, dried fruit, apricots and raisins.
The attack is both full and delicate, with generous aromas of candied fruit. A hint of blackcurrant then develops, complementing the rich and elegant aromatic range, underpinning a long finish of spice and beeswax notes.
