LOUIS XIII TIME COLLECTION: TRIBUTE TO CITY OF LIGHTS - 1900
After the first opus “THE ORIGIN – 1874”, LOUIS XIII has partnered with the Monnaie de Paris and the Cristallerie Saint-Louis to create a second limited-edition collectors piece: “TRIBUTE TO CITY OF LIGHTS – 1900″....
The Tribute to City of Lights – 1900 is the second edition of the exclusive LOUIS XIII Time Collection by Remy Martin, a series of limited-edition decanters commemorating the year that LOUIS XIII cognac was unveiled at the famous Paris Exposition.
50 million people and 83,000 exhibitors descended onto the capital in 1900, for The World Fair celebrating technical, industrial, technological, architectural and artistic prowesses of that will shape the century to come.
The cognac is made from a unique blend of up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie from grapes grown in the exceptional terroir of Cognac Grande Champagne. The specially selected eaux-de-vie are aged slowly in century old Limousin oak casks called tierçons before being expertly blended to create our signature blend of cognac. Containing aged eaux-de-vie, each one carefully watched over by generations of Cellar Master, every drop of LOUIS XIII cognac represents decades of craftsmanship and know-how, resulting in a unique taste of time that will be similar in the next century.
The LOUIS XIII City of Lights – 1900 special edition is presented in a limited series of 2,000 numbered decanters. The decanter is based on the distinctive design, inspired by a 16th-century flask uncovered from the site of the Battle of Jarnac, and later owned by LOUIS XIII founder, Paul-Émile Rémy Martin. Hand crafted by skilled artisans, the City of Lights – 1900 decanter features 13 dentelle spikes rather than the usual 10, seven fleur-de-lys in 18ct gold and a central medallion. A limited-edition stopper takes the form of an upturned decanter, and incorporates NFC technology that allows you to register your decanter with the LOUIS XIII Society, and receive a unique numbered medal minted by the Monnaie de Paris.
As an additional bonus each numbered decanter of LOUIS XIII Time Collection – City of Lights – 1900 comes with a specially commissioned medal minted by the Monnaie de Paris, the world’s oldest coinage institution. Once your decanter is registered with the LOUIS XIII Society you will be sent a unique full-size medal stamped with the same number.
