Cognac Louis XIII: taste the aromas of time

For over a century, LOUIS XIII has been synonymous of refinement the world over.
It has been a witness to many of the most significant events of our age: it was exhibited at the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1900 and soon established itself as a symbol of French taste and sophistication. In the years that followed, it captivated the royal courts of Europe and became a permanent feature at the most prestigious hotels. And that proud legacy endures today, as LOUIS XIII continues to transcend time.

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. Each individually numbered decanter is designed after an original 16th century metal flask, discovered on the site of the battle of Jarnac in France and is made from fine crystal, mouth-blown by some of the most skilled master craftsmen.

LOUIS XIII is the embodiment of an ancestral savoir-faire, each decanter is the life achievement of generations of Cellar Masters. Since its origins in 1874, each generation of Cellar Master selects from our cellars the oldest and greatest eaux-de-vie for LOUIS XIII. Today, Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau is setting aside our finest eaux‐de‐vie, as a legacy to his successors who will continue to blend LOUIS XIII for the next century. It is the ultimate expression of the mastery of time.

Over the decades, a unique communion between the air, the wood and the eaux-de-vie culminates in an explosion of flavors and aromas, evoking myrrh, honey, dried roses, plum, honeysuckle, tobacco, leather, figs and passion fruit. LOUIS XIII develops intense aromas which persist over an hour on the palate. The myriad of reflections and colors dancing in the light ranges from assertive and flamboyant golden hues to a marvellous deep mahogany color, all the way up to fiery red. "LOUIS XIII is a wave of sensations that carries you away" says Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau.
