L’Or de Jean Martell “Dome” by Eric Gizard


The house of Martell has collaborated with French interior architect and designer Eric Gizard to create the “Dôme” gift box for L’Or de Jean Martell.  I worked by drawing inspiration from cabinets of curiosities where collectors would store precious, almost magical objects in Renaissance Europe,” Eric Gizard said. “I was also inspired by silver cloches from great restaurants that excite curiosity and showcase the revelation of an exceptional dish.” The Dome’s base contains a hidden book that emerges with a single push. A mirror placed behind the bottle reflects and enhances the colour of this intense cognac. L’Or de Jean Martell is a blend of very old Grande Champagne and Borderies eaux-de-vie, creating a unique blend of elegance, power and roundness. This blend consists over 400 rare eaux-de-vie, some more than a century old, and they come in a precious crystal decanter. The cognac is a testimony to Jean Martell, whose founding principles are based on the pursuit of perfection. It has notes of fruited candy, sweet spices and gingerbread.
