‘Red’ is a reference to the reddish colour 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.
Colour: warm copper with glints of gold.
Aroma: Intense aromas of ripe yellow fruit: mirabelle plum, greengage, apricot and vine peach.
Taste: luscious fruit notes fuse deliciously with hints of wood and soft spices from the red barrels, creating an impression of elegance and perfect balance.
Serving tips: a cognac to enjoy neat, on ice, or in long drinks and cocktails.
