"It was in 1715 that our ancestor Jean Martell, originally from Jersey, settled in Cognac and established the Society that bears his name today.
267 years later, the Isle of Jersey pays tribute to Jean Martell as part of a philatelic series on the theme of his ties with France through the great men who have contributed to the history of both countries.
In turn, we pay tribute to Jean Martell by editing a Reserve of the Founder. This exceptional cognac, a marriage of very rare eaux-de-vie dating back to some in 1906, has only been published with 160 bottles and will not be renewed.
We recommend keeping this bottle upright in a cool place; thus, once opened, will not have disappeared and flourish the very volatile ethers, which contribute to the wonderful aroma of this cognac.
After several years, a slight deposit may form in the bottle. From the natural tannin developed by a very long aging in oak barrels, this deposit does not alter the quality of this great cognac.
