Think a Century Ahead. Each decanter is the life achievement of generations of Cellar Masters. First created in 1874, LOUIS XIII Cognac is an exquisite blend of up to 1,200 grapes eaux-de-vie sourced 100% from Grande Champagne, the first cru of the Cognac region. Each eau-de-vie is matured slowly inside oak cask. The embodiment of an ancestral savoir-faire, LOUIS XIII Cognac has been watched over by generations of Cellar Masters since its origins. Each Cellar Master selects and sets aside for his successors the oldest and greatest eaux-de-vie from LOUIS XIII cellars, which makes LOUIS XIII the ultimate expression of the mastery of Time. Today, Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau is setting aside our finest eaux-de-vie, as a legacy to his successors for the coming century. The decanter is made of pure Saint-Louis Crystal, with 13 dentelle spikes and a unique stopper in the form of an upturned decanter. The neck and collar seal are in a champagne-gold hue,a nd the decanter itself is housed in an elegant metal case. This features a sleek woven texture that represents the wicker baskets in which the original bottles of Louis XIII Cogancs were delivered.
