A limited edition tribute to the original decanter from 1874.
In honour of the act of genius dreamed up by Paul-Emile Remy Martin in 1874, LOUIS XIII therefore presents a special edition that returns to the design of the very first decanters used 142 years ago, from the moment Paul-Emile Remy Martin purchased an ancient royal flask unearthed by a farmer in a field near Jarnac, the site of a historic battle.
Inspired by its striking shape and regal fleur-de-lys medallions, he decided to create a decanter in its image for a special cognac composed with only the very oldest and rarest eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne in his cellars.
At that time, the decanter's distinctive features included 13 dentelle spikes – not the usual 10 spikes we know now – and a unique stopper in the form of an upturned decanter instead of a fleur-de-lys. The neck and collar seal are in a champagne-gold hue, exclusive to this edition.
Made of pure Saint-Louis crystal, the decanter is housed in an elegant metal case and features a sleek woven texture, a modern reinterpretation of the wicker baskets in which the original bottles of LOUIS XIII were delivered. It is sealed with a slender metal rod, like the baskets were in their day.
