With its elegant arch-shape decanter, Martell XO has a distinctly architectural quality and reflects the House’s invitation to elevate. The contrasting slender shape of the silver top gives the decanter a delicate aesthetic balance. This sensational blend includes Eaux-de-vie from Martell’s four main terroirs but is marked by a subtle balance between the elegance and roundness of the old Borderies Eaux-de-vie, and the intensity typical of those from Grande Champagne. Martell XO begins with a nose of ground black pepper and coriander, then moves along to a rounded and fruity palate reminiscent of figs and walnuts. Its long and silky finish bears the hallmark of the Martell style.
Martell XO is ideal for special occasions. Best enjoyed neat, or with a splash of water to bring out the aromas.
