The Louis XIII Time Collection: Tribute to City of Lights – 1900 is only limited to 2000 units.
In partnership with the Monnaie de Paris and The Cristallerie of Saint-Louis, Louis XIII pays tribute to Paris in 1900, where the cognac producer was first awarded at The Paris World Fair, with the debut of a new limited edition: The Louis XIII Time Collection: Tribute to City of Lights – 1900.
The Paris World Fair was a global festival that celebrated engineering feats, technical triumphs and creative prowess that saw the amalgamation of 83,000 exhibitors, all presenting a vision of the world 100 years into the future. It was thanks to founder Paul-Émile Rémy Martin, who was also an active member of the Paris Universal Exposition jury, that Louis XIII was presented and applauded. It was showcased alongside the Monnaie de Paris, who minted over 40000 medals awarded throughout the 210 days event.
Louis XIII, The Monnaie de Paris, and Satin-Louis are all historic yet forward-thinking French Houses that continuously preserves an ancestral savoir-faire. With the unique Tribute To City Of Lights, they have come together to capture the imprint of Time in a creation whose value will stand the test of time.
The decanter itself is a rendition of the first opus inspired by a flask found on the battlefield of Jarnac that was fought in 1569. It features 13 dentelle spikes instead of the usual 10, a stopper in the form of an upturned decanter, an elegant neck and 7 fleur-de-lys decorated with an 18 carats champagne gold, as well as a central medallion which showcases the Louis XIII Time Collection: Tribute to City of Lights – 1900 unique medal. Each corner of the champagne-gold metal coffret presents a new medal design. Inspired by illustrations from the archives of the Monnaie de Paris, each captures a facet of Paris in 1900: Arts & Craftsmanship, the Iconic Architecture, the City of Lights and La Parisienne.
With each bottle of this limited edition tribute to Paris, the owner is given exclusive access to a full-size medal specially minted by the Monnaie de Paris special workshops and engraved with the same unique number as the decanter. It’s a must-have for any cognac connoisseur, serving as a collector’s piece that can be treasured for all time. The cognac will also provide to its clients a seamless access to an exclusive world of privilege, thanks to the integration of NFC technology on the cork stopper. Each decanter directly connects clients to the Louis XIII Society, a private club where members can enjoy exclusive content, unique experiences and personalised services through their smartphones.
Limited to only 2000 bottles priced at €7000 (approximately RM33,000), the Louis XIII Time Collection: Tribute to City of Lights – 1900 is available globally at selected fine wine and spirits merchants, as well as the Louis XIII boutiques in Beijing, Xi’an, and London.
