The LOUIS XIII Classic decanter has remained the ultimate expression of our finest eaux-de-vie blend since 1874, containing up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne terroir.
Up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie, made using grapes grown in Grande Champagne – the premier cru of the Cognac region – are carefully blended over the years to create the cognac inside every LOUIS XIII Classic decanter. Provenance and time are the very essence of LOUIS XIII cognac. Each drop represents a finely tuned craft passed down from one generation of Cellar Master to the next.
The eaux-de-vie are slowly aged in old Limousin tierçons (traditional aged French oak casks). Every sip is a taste of time.
No two of these decanters are the same. Hand-crafted by skilled artisans from the finest European crystal houses, each decanter is individually numbered and unique. The distinctive design, featuring a 20-carat gold neck and 10 distinctive spikes on each side, is inspired by a 16th-century flask uncovered from the site of the Battle of Jarnac, France, and later owned by LOUIS XIII founder, Paul-Émile Rémy Martin.
LOUIS XIII cognac (70cl) has a small NFC chip integrated in the cork stopper, allowing seamless connection of clients to the LOUIS XIII Society, a private club where members can enjoy exclusive content, experiences and personalized services.
The LOUIS XIII Classic decanter is beautifully presented in a signature red display case with contemporary design features, and retains the iconic red colour. The coffret offers a new opening experience that recalls the moment in a gastronomic restaurant when the cloche is lifted to reveal the delights within. The coffret comes complete with an integrated mirror display to showcase the decanter at home, as well as a dedicated book to discover more about LOUIS XIII.
