THE RAREST OF ALL LOUIS XIII DECANTERS
The House of Rémy Martin has come of age in the 21st century with the largest Baccarat crystal cognac decanter ever produced to contain the golden cognac from legendary Cellar Masters
The landmark creation of cognac from the Cellar Masters is contained in the rarest and only decanter of its kind in the world. Named Le Salmanazar, it is a decanter of approximately twelve times the standard size of a wine bottle. Many traditional wine bottle sizes are named for Biblical kings and historical figures, so it comes as no surprise that the marriage of Louis XIII cognac by legendary Rémy Martin, founded in 1724, and the decanter named for the king, is the creation of the famed house of Baccarat crystal. Inspired by a flask found on the battlefield of Jarnac, Baccarat successfully took on the feat of crystal-making on a scale to which only the great master can hope to achieve.
“Innovation is written in the legacy of LOUIS XIII, renowned for rising to the greatest challenges and utmost heights. Today LOUIS XIII creates LOUIS XIII LE SALMANAZAR, a decanter so rare, there is only one in the world. A collector’s masterpiece, this exquisitely unique decanter stands as the ultimate symbol of LOUIS XIII’s history, tradition and passion for rare craftsmanship,” said Ludovic du Plessis, LOUIS XIII Global Executive Director.
There is only one life and one should live it supremely, particularly if the life achievement of generations of Cellar Masters is rooted not only in soil, but also in the finest of eaux-de-vie (waters of life) for LOUIS XIII special cognac. The exquisite blend sourced from 100 percent Grande Champagne, the first cru of the Cognac region features exceptional aromas evoking the fragrances of time held in a decanter: myrrh, honey dried roses, plum, honeysuckle, cigar box, leather, and the fragrance of what is only LOUIS XIII.
Presented in an elegant display chest that houses the decanter, 8 crystal glasses, a serving platter, and a specially designed spear, the lucky owner of this masterpiece will enjoy the full experience of the tasting ritual that only a few privileged connoisseurs have partaken. The LOUIS XIII LE SALMANAZAR, will be available at the world’s first LOUIS XIII Boutique in Beijing SKP, for $450,000, where it will be presented to future connoisseurs of all things fine and luxurious.
