An extremely rare cognac uniquely crafted by Christophe Valtaud.
For the first edition of the collection, Martell Cellar Master Christophe Valtaud has selected two of the oldest and rarest eaux-de-vie from the precious Réserve du Fondateur, which contains some of Maison Martell’s oldest vintages, carefully preserved in dames-jeannes.
Distilled over 70 years ago, the two eaux-de-vie selected by Christophe Valtaud come from Grande Champagne, the most prestigious terroir in the Cognac region.
Both were aged in a historic cellar at Port du Lys, acquired by the sons of the founders in the 18th century, before being transferred to the legendary Jean Martell cellar, where the House’s rarest eaux-de-vie are kept.
The first, having spent longer in oak, is characterised by power, tension and length on the palate, with prominent notes of cedar. The second is fresh and vibrant, with notes of honey, white flowers and candied fruit. While the first eau-de-vie evolves from wood to fruit, the second evolves from fruit to wood, thus creating a remarkable harmony that would not exist were they tasted alone.
“My aim was to make the invisible visible.. from the Earth to the Sun, from the roots in the soil to the vine leaves turned upwards to the light.”
This remarkable edition is complemented by an elegant and luxurious cabinet featuring a circular plateau to showcase the work of art and a cylindrical stand to house the service ritual.
The exterior of the cabinet may be personalized to the client’s tastes.
Reflecting the luxury and prestige of Les Remarquables de Martell, this edition is accompanied by a set of beautifully crafted accessories designed to bring expertise and refinement to the service ritual.
