KING OF KINGS
Louis XIII Black Pearl is flamboyant and elusive, transcending time with a glamorous design combining classicism and modernity. A shower of sparkling stars caresses the pure crystal of the hand-blown carafe to create a futuristic crystal the colour of steel, like a liquid captured in its very substance, and evokes turbulent emotions in those who let their gaze become lost within. The carafe ceaselessly plays with the light, which sweeps, rebounds and is immediately reflected back, creating pure flashes of silver, black, chrome, blue, anthracite and mahogany, like a black pearl, the pearl of queens. The light is fragmented and plays with its shadow. The optical illusions are infinite.
In 1874, Paul-Emile Rémy Martin wanted to convey to the world the symbol of a certain idea of Art de Vivre à la française. In the decade following its creation, Louis XIII sparkled over the five continents, from New York to Shanghai, through Paris, Osaka and Cape Town. Nicknamed the King of Cognacs because since its creation it has been the Cognac of Kings, Louis XIII reigned in the greatest royal and imperial courts in Europe, in Bade-Würtemberg or Saint-Petersburg. Served to Queen Elizabeth in 1938, it became England’s cognac of choice when Winston Churchill adopted it in 1948 during a stay in Aix-en-Provence. Sailing in First Class on the Normandie liner in 1932 and on board the Orient-Express for its inaugural journey in 1929 to Constantinople, Louis XIII has always been the part of Great Men's lives.
A rare Grande Champagne cognac aged in a specially crafted singular oak barrel. The cognac is presented in a handcrafted Baccarat black crystal decanter as a tribute to the signature Louis XIII decanter, which was originally modeled on a metal flask found in the Cognac region of France in 1569. A magnum of the fabulous Remy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl, decanted from a single blending cask (tiercon) into just 358 1.5L carafes of Baccarat's futuristic Black Pearl crystal.
Using only grapes from the Grande Champagne area (which produces the finest cognacs) in the heart of the Cognac region, 100 year old Louis XIII has been carefully tended by four generations of Cellar Masters. The result is a sublime blend of flavours, from passion fruit and honeysuckle to aromatic nutmeg and ginger.
A steel-coloured futuristic crystal, like a fluid held in the light, fascinates those who gaze deeply into it. The silver, black, blue, charcoal and mahogany glints recall the black pearl, the pearl of queens. This crystal, unique in the world, holds a very special Louis XIII cognac that has aged in a century-old ‘tierçon’, one of the oldest casks from the family’s personal reserve.
Louis XIII Black Pearl Magnum pays homage to the intensity of the last century.
