ONE CENTURY IN A BOTTLE
Each decanter takes four generations
of Cellar Masters over 100 years to craft.
First created in 1874, LOUIS XIII is an intricate alchemy - a subtle blend of up to 1,200
distinct eaux-de-vie, the youngest of which is at least 40 years old. They are distilled from
grapes grown in the chalky soil of Grande Champagne, the most sought-after area of
France’s Cognac region, and matured slowly inside age-old oak casks known as "Tierçons".
Each individually numbered crystal decanter is a replica of the original 16th century metal
flask, discovered on the site of the battle of Jarnac. The embodiment of an ancestral
savoir-faire, LOUIS XIII is a rare artifact that takes four generations of Cellar Masters over
100 years to craft. It is the ultimate expression of the mastery of time.
