A Martell bottle in Texas! A reader has a cognac bottle at home: J & F Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac.

The bottle is located in Knoxville TN, soon to be Houston Texas TX. “My grandfather had recently passed away, and my mother was cleaning and sorting the house. She found some boxes in the closet and thought them to be garbage. Upon further inspection, there was a variety of vintage cognacs. This bottle is in its original light blue box with yellow lining, and the golden seal that looks like the sun.”

    I am living in Houston, Texas. I like to know about a bottle was listed by one reader in Knoxville (Martell Cordon Blue). Is it still available and how much does it cost?

    It’s a very nice bottle. I believe it is from 1959. First version with the blue cord (Cordon Bleu) around the neck. The previous year there was no cord on the bottle. The box is in decent condition. Thank you for selling it to me Lisa.
