You are here:

Wine/Martell Cordon Bleu L.E 700ml Cognac


I was given this bottle in 1972 as a gift. I was going to celebrate with when I completed my military career but could not do it. It is a frosted green bottle with the No CA6994. It has a thin green and gold ribbon from the middle front to the middle back of the bottle going over the top. It has never been opened but has a scuff hole (Small) under the Bleu on the label and the back part of the ribbon is missing. Sorry I should have said I am in Australia 90km north of Melbourne. Thank you. Robert Harris


It sounds like your bottle is in fairly good condition, Cordon Bleu was very popular in the 60s and 70s, I spent those years running restaurants in the North of England, and it was probably the most popular cognac.
I would value for auction purposes £60/80 GBP.

Kind regards,
