The Cordon Bleu product by Martell is a classic. One of our readers has a cognac bottle at home, it’s a Baccarat J & F Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac.

The bottle is located in United States. “I got this from my father about 5 years ago, put it way and then forgot about it. While cleaning out the liquor cabinet this weekend, I ran across the boxed set again and begin to wonder what exactly I have. Why was it made, what do the seal/gold stamp on the box mean and, of course, what is it wort? The box is itself is in fairly good condition and the red velvet is beautiful. The satin lining is in excellant condition. The bottle itslef is completly sealed with tax label on it. Can anyone provide me any information about the bottle and it’s worth? Many thanks!”

(If you also have a Cognac bottle you would like to sell, or you need information about age or value – send us photos and information, just submit: Use this form – but please be aware: if you don’t follow the steps precisely, we will not publish your bottle.)

The label reads: Baccarat J & F Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac, there is also a card in the box that’s written in French (I think) and there is a tax stamp over the top of the bottle. If there other markings, I may not realize what I am looking for, so feel free to message me instructions and I can send photos.

Tax labels, revenue, signs or similar: Yes, bottle is sealed and tax stamps in place. There is a card in the box but I do not know what it says. I believe it’s written in French.

How has the bottle been stored:

  • At room temperature

Some more information about the bottle:

  • Cork seems to be dry

The level of the cognac: High shoulder or top shoulder: the level of cognac has reached the upper curve of the shoulder.

    Very nice bottle, excellent box. Please contact me if interested in selling. $1,000. It is a newer of this set. Older version may fetch $1,200-$1,300
    I have bought several of these in the last 6 months, including one from 1959 on this site. I am located in the US and can arrange pick-up and cash payment in some areas.
