The use of English-language designations like "very superior old pale" and "extra old" reflected aged cognac's status as primarily an export product. The House perpetuates an uncompromising savoir-faire by ageing its eaux-de-vie exclusively in barrels of fine-grained oak.

In 2011 the marque Martell expanded into an "ultra-prestige" range with Martell Chanteloup Perspective, a tribute to the know-how of the cellar masters and to the Domaine de Chanteloup.By 2015 Martell was producing around 14 million bottles of its cognacs a year, [3] making it the world's second-largest cognac producer behind Hennessy.

It was then a location known for smuggling, which may have led to his involvement in the liquor trade. This specificity encourages the development of refined aromas, exemplified by the lusciously fruity notes of Martell VSOP.
