Louis XIII The Classic Decanter
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 LOUIS XIII 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 to seamlessly connect 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 while retaining 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.

About The Producer
The origins of Louis XIII cognac begin with the founding of the House in the Cognac region in the early 1700s. In 1841, after more than a century of producing cognac, Paul-Emile Rémy Martin assumed control of the business and began selling the House’s cognacs under the family name. The eaux-de-vie for Louis XIII are still exclusively sourced from the Grande Champagne cru of Cognac. This region in Cognac is distinguished for its limestone composition that is considered ideal for the grapes employed in the production of cognac. The ageing process takes place exclusively inside 100- to 150-year-old tierçons, thin-walled French oak casks originally designed for maritime transport that are no longer being produced.
