Martell VSOP Cognac Red Barrel
Aged in “Red Barrels”, Martell provides an interesting
definition of what this term means. The Cognac House uses it to describe their
fine-grained oak barrels once they have previously held Eaux-de-vie for between
two years and eight years, changing the character of the oak and giving it a
distinctive red color. Only these casks are used to age Martell’s VSOP, as they
are said to produce a superior balance.
