You only knew about Cognac Martell Cordon Bleu? Well, here comes a bottle a reader owns, a Martell Cordon Noir Napoleon:
“This bottle was found during a cleanup in the basement where I live. The cellar has not been used for at least 10 years. I can only find limited information about the bottle.”
(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 front label says :
Cordon Noir Napoleon Cognac
Produced and bottled by : Martell Cognac France.
This is written on the back label:
est issu de tres vieilles eaux-de-vie de cognac elevees dans les chais de la maison martell. La rarete de ce cognac, aboutissement d’une tradition jalousement preservee par la familie Martell depuis plus de 250 ans, nous conduit a limiter sa distribution.
Cette bouteille porte le No : C07089 – on the bottom of the label some text in norwegian : farven justert med naturlig karamel, which means : the color is adjusted with natural caramel.
“It seems like it was for sale in the 80’s. It’s a one liter bottle, so I would assume it’s for the tax free marked.”
Any information would be great. When was it for sale, is it a rare bottle, is it an expensive or regular cognac?
Our reader found some information leading him to think that the cognac in the bottle is between 15 and 20 years old ( when it was bottled ).
