Sophistication Embodied In This Elixir From Its Nose, Palate and Finish - A Rare Creation Indeed

Martell Creation Grand Extra Cognac
VISUAL: Topaz, amber
NOSE: Gingerbread and dried fruits. Freshness, with orange marmalade aromas, lemon zest and orange blossom. Starts floral, then fruity and builds to almost a hard-candy bouquet.
PALATE: Soft and silky, releasing a warm mellowness reinforcing the smoothness of the sophisticated blend. This initial mellowness is then intensified by an incredible elegance in the mouth and an explosion of flavours.
FINISH: Superb and very long finish with nice *rancio notes of walnuts, oriental spices and cedar wood, sweetness and followed by a hint of cheese at the end.
The Martell Creation Grand Extra Cognac is made from a blend of Martell's finest and oldest selection of eaux de vie from the Borderies and Grande Champage. Sophisticated and multi-layered from nose to palate and finish, this cognac brings cognac appreciation to new frontiers!
*First Rancio stage: 10 to 15 years
Peak of vanilla and oak taste, Flowery, dried rose, nutty, spicy
