LOUIS XIII Cognac

"The unique collaboration between LOUIS XIII, HERMÈS, PUIFORCAT and SAINT-LOUIS had to be represented by an exceptional blend, an assemblage of eaux-de-vie from Grande champagne that are as rare as they are precious.", says Baptiste Loiseau of the very special blend he crafted together with former Cellar Master Pierrette Trichet for L'ODYSSÉE D'UN ROI.
