Think a century ahead. Each decanter is the life achievement of generations of cellar masters. For over a century, LOUIS XIII has been synonymous of refinement the world over. Created in 1874, 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. Distilled from grapes grown in the chalky soil of Grande Champagne, the first cru of the Cognac region. It matures slowly inside age-old oak casks, watched over by generations of Cellar Masters. Over the decades, a mysterious communion between the air, the wood and the eaux-de-vie culminates in a magical firework of flavors and aromas.
