The second vintage Martell is an expression of contrast. It combines the strength and structure of blackcurrant with the gentle refinement of gingerbread. One vintage, two facets, a unique experience.

MILLESIMES 1971 The spirit

The spirit

The limited and numbered Millesimes Collection brings a vintage eau-de-vie into the light of the day. Following 42 years of aging in Martell’s oldest cellar, the Chais de la Coquille, this special eau-de-vie has been chosen for its exceptional temperament and embodiment of the elegance, balance and complexity characteristic of the Martell style. 

MILLESIMES 1971 Tasting notes

Tasting notes

The three vintage eaux-de-vie chosen from the Millesime 1971 come from the most prestigious crus, they came to light after over 40 years of aging. Finesse and elegance are the key sensations and the finish is delightfully harmonious.


A rich copper colour.


Aromas of wild honey, gingerbread and fine spices such as cinnamon and saffron.


The ample, round attack is an accord of red and black fruits that develops and prevails over the initial notes of dried fruits and rancio.


Best enjoyed neat for special occasions.
