“LOUIS XIII is a wave of sensations that carries you away” - Baptiste Loiseau, Cellar Master for LOUIS XIII
THE CLASSIC DECANTER
Our LOUIS XIII Classic decanter is a large, individually numbered decanter containing 750ML of LOUIS XIII cognac. No two decanters are the same, as each one is hand-crafted by skilled crystal artisans. The famous design, with its distinctive curves and fleur-de-lys motif, takes inspiration from a 16th-century flask found on the French battlesite of Jarnac.
The founder Paul Emile Rémy Martin acquired it and its design became the foundation for the iconic LOUIS XIII decanters known today, with their 20ct gold necks and distinctive dentelle spikes.
The LOUIS XIII Classic is beautifully presented in a signature red display case that has been modernized with contemporary design features while retaining the iconic red color. 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 coffees come complete with an integrated mirror display to showcase the decanter in wine stores, restaurants, palaces, hotels, and at home, as well as a dedicated booklet to discover more about LOUIS XIII.
SCENT & FLAVOR
A dense celebration of floral notes and candied fruits with hints of spices emerges first.
- SECOND SIP
Notes of jasmine twirled with nuances of passion fruit, themselves flirting with ginger and nutmeg. Touches of roses and iris are dancing with elements of fig, prunes, in turn being sustained harmoniously by layers of sandalwood and honey.
- FINISHFour generations of cellar masters have succeeded each other to produce these intense aromas that persist more than an hour on the palate.
