A cognac with subtle aromas. The Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels is a perfect harmony of luscious fruit and refined wood overtones. Aged in “Red Barrels”, Martell VSOP Red Barrels provides an interesting definition of what this term means. The Cognac House uses it to describe their fine-grained oak barrels once they have previously held Eaux-de-vie for between two years and eight years, changing the character of the oak and giving it a distinctive red color. Only these casks are used to age Martell VSOP Red Barrels, as they are said to produce a superior balance. Make sure to check out Martell VSOP Medaillon Cognac as well.
Warm copper with glints of gold.
Intense aromas of ripe yellow fruit: Mirabeau plum, greengage, apricot and vine peach.
Luscious fruit notes fuse deliciously with hints of wood and soft spices from the red barrels, creating an impression of elegance and perfect balance.
‘Red’ is a reference to the reddish color of aged oak. These barrels, crafted from fine-grained oak, have already been used to age eaux-de-vie and have reached the perfect stage of maturity before being selected for this cognac. Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels perfectly highlights Martell’s unique ageing style.
A cognac to enjoy neat, on ice, or in long drinks and cocktails.
A drop of Martell
Just a drop of Martell on a dish could completely transform its flavor. We recommend serving an oyster on a tray with a pipette and a glass of Martell VSOP as a restaurant ritual serve.
