The Martell VSOP Red Barrel Cognac is a real treat, and offers extraordinary value for money. It takes the taster on a wonderful sensory journey, right from the moment you first lay eyes on it. The Cognac has a rather unique, luminous appearance, tempting you to enjoy its deliciously spicy aromas that have been imparted from the red oak casks in which the Cognac was aged.
On the palate it continues to impress, with sensual yellow fruits coming to the fore, combining power and delicacy in just the right measures. Enjoy this quality VSOP in many ways; perhaps in the traditional manner, as a digestif gently warmed in the hand. It works superbly over ice, or even straight from the freezer! Whatever way you choose to drink it, this Martell Cognac will certainly be well received at all kinds of occasions.
A perfect harmony of luscious fruit aromas and refined wood overtones.
A warm copper colour with glints of gold, giving it a uniquely luminous appearance.
At first, the bouquet is round and fresh, run through by intense fruity notes. The aromas of fresh yellow stone fruits, like cherry plum and baby Reine-Claude, are gently coated by subtle mellowed woody notes. Once in motion, the power of its aromas grows and gains depth, with fleshier fruits such as apricot or vine peach chiming in.
In the mouth, it has a full, broad attack and unveils the same intense fruity tones – small plums and honeymoon peaches and apricots. The fruity flavours are marvellously enhanced by delicate notes of sweet spices from the wood of the russet barrels – the very same barrels that create that perfect balance between the expressiveness of the eaux-de-vie and refinement of the spiced notes.
