Martell, the oldest of the great cognac houses, recently unveiled its outstanding new cognac, Chanteloup XXO, during a dazzling event at the historic Petit Palais in Paris. Guests from around the world joined the maison at the landmark launch, which initiated an entirely new category of cognac.
The Martell Chanteloup XXO is an exceptional blend of 450 very old eaux-de-vie drawn from the four finest terroirs in the Cognac region and is a supreme demonstration of the Martell art of blending, passed on through 300 years and nine generations of cellar masters.
The Martell Chanteloup XXO is accompanied by the Martell Chanteloup XXO Masterpiece, an exquisitely crafted, made-to-order trunk that is the centrepiece of an entire bespoke experience designed to bring cognac lovers closer to the creative process.
Both were presented during a gala dinner orchestrated by three-Michelin starred chef Guy Savoy, who worked for several months with Martell Cellar Master Christophe Valtaud to create dishes that would enhance the uniquely rich and complex aromas of the Martell Chanteloup XXO.
With the launch of Martell Chanteloup XXO, maison Martell demonstrates not only its savoir-faire and mastery of the art of blending, but also the spirit of audacity and innovation that are the legacy of its founder Jean Martell.
