LOUIS XIII cognac was created in 1874. Each decanter takes four generations of cellar masters over 100 years to craft. It is an intricate alchemy of up to 1200 eaux de vie, the youngest of which is at least 40 years old. Its wine grapes grow in the chalky soils of the Grande Champagne, the most sought-after area of the Cognac, France region. The unique blend evokes tasting notes and scents of myrrh, honey, immortelle, plum, honeysuckle, wood bark, leather and passion fruits. LOUIS XIII cognac is the ultimate expression of the mastery of time.
Louis XIII LE JEROBOAM is four times the capacity of the regular LOUIS XIII. Eleven pounds of crystal are gathered, blown and shaped to create the decanter. Each decanter is individually numbered. The Louis XIII LE JEROBOAM collection is only released in very limited quantities each year.
