Martell Assemblage Exclusif de 3 Millésimes Cognac
Martell // Cognac, France
Released in 2015 as one of a few bottles to celebrate Martell's 300th birthday, Assemblage is a blend of three vintages. Each vintage was selected for its representation of each century in Martell's history. The Grande Champagne is from 1957 and represents the first century for its power and structure. The Fins Bois, which is the largest of the sub-regions of Cognac, is from 1982 and represents the second century for its rapid growth and rise in stature. The Borderies from 1979 represents the third century which has become a signature of Martell, particularly for its Cordon Bleu bottling. Only 3,000 bottles were released.
