Louis XIII, the Cognac, is 140 years old
by Sophie Gayot To celebrate the 140th birthday of Louis XIII Cognac, The House of Rémy Martin came out with a surprise that’s destined for Cognac connoisseurs — for advanced ones, considering the price tag of this very special bottle: $16,000 (plus tax). The Louis XIII Black Pearl Anniversary Edition, limited to 775 decanters coming from a unique 572-liter tierçon, will be released in a few days in November. Between the golden liquid and the decanter, the result is a distinguished true work of passion, art and luxury. Watch my exclusive video interview with Louis XIII brand ambassador Sten Lilja. You will get a full explanation of the birth of Louis XIII Cognac, the crown jewel of The House of Rémy Martin, which debuted in 1874.
