For over a century, LOUIS XIII has been synonymous of refinement and craftsmanship. 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 Cognac's Grande Champagne vineyards, it matures slowly inside age-old oak casks, watched over by four 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.
- First Sip: A dense celebration of floral notes and candied fruits with hints of spices emerge first.
- Second Sip: Notes of jasmine twirled with nuances of passion fruit, themselves flirting with ginger and nutmeg. Touches of roses and iris are dancing with elements of fig, prunes, in turn being sustained harmoniously by layers of sandalwood and honey.
- Finish: Four generations of cellar masters have succeeded each other to produce these intense aromas that persist more than an hour on the palate.
