When a barrel is called “Red,” a reference to the reddish color of aged wood, it has matured for at least two years and up to eight, reaching the perfect stage of maturation for both the wood and the spirit.
For Martell VSOP matured in Red Barrels, our cellar master selected only these very rare “red, fine-grained oak barrels” to mature this cognac, highlighting Martell’s specific aging style.
Martell VSOP Medallion Cognac Tasting Notes
Aspect | A warm copper color with glints of gold, giving it a uniquely luminous appearance.
Mouthfeel | A full, broad attack that unveils the same intense fruity tones—plums,
peaches and apricots. The fruity flavors are marvelously enhanced by delicate notes of sweet spices from the wood of the red barrels—the very same barrels that create that perfect balance between the expressiveness of the eaux -de-vie and refinement of the spiced notes.
Martell VSOP Matured in Red Barrels—fruitiness, finesse, and utter delicacy.
