Character Goatson
The Poe Toaster used to pay an annual tribute to Edgar Allan Poe by leaving the unfinished bottle of Martell on his grave for over seven decades.

Jean Martell founded the Martell house in 1715 on the boards of the Cherente river. It is the oldest of the “big four” and one that is distinct for using grapes from the Borderies crus of the Cognac region. This gives their cognac a characteristic smooth, and nutty taste, which is Martell's signature. It is usually matured in Tronçais oak, resulting in a less wooden aroma and leaving the cognac more pure and neutral.

Martell VSOP average age is 10 to 12 years and is a mix of blended, mature eaux-de-vie from the four finest growths of the region.

There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and be aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most Cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.
The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
There are three primary grades of Cognac recognized by law: V.S., V.S.O.P., and X.O, but we also know Napoléon, XXO, and Hors d'âge.
