Wines from Martell
Jean Martell was a visionary entrepreneur, a man who was very hard-working yet a born hedonist too; there was a famous saying of his, "Our duty ought to be a pleasure and our pleasure, a duty". Most exacting, Martell established for his cognacs some rigorous quality standards which the brand has successfully maintained throughout its more than 300 years of history, being today the oldest of Cognac's great wineries. Founded in 1715, Martell didn't take long to achieve an elegant and refined style which resulted in it becoming the favourite cognac at European royal courts. Nowadays, as then, it continues to be an essential name when talking of Cognac.
