A LIMITED-EDITION IN TRIBUTE TO ANDRE HERIARD DUBREUIL, THE FORMER CHAIRMAN BORN 100 YEARS AGO.
“I selected this tierçon because it embodies the atmosphere in this cellar: the vision of André Hériard Dubreuil, his pioneering partnership with the winegrowers and the footprint of time.”
Baptiste Loiseau, LOUIS XIII Cellar Master
For the first time ever, LOUIS XIII presents an exquisite and totally unprecedented limited edition. A precious 35cl steel-coloured crystal decanter containing a rare blend of LOUIS XIII Cognac drawn from a single tierçon in the family reserve, deep inside the André Hériard Dubreuil cellar.
The Maison Baccarat produced a decanter of such refined and intricate beauty: hand-blown and decorated with iridescent palladium plating. A multitude of reflections catch the light, dance across the surface and splinter into flashes of silver, black and anthracite.
This unique limited edition of just 1498 numbered decanters pays homage to André Hériard Dubreuil, the former chairman born 100 years ago. This rare and precious blend is the signature of the cellar built in his name, where a unique tierçon of 576 liters deep in the alcove against the chalky wall caught the attention of Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau: N°C100_139.
When you step inside into the cellar, the air is chilly, but the moist warmth of the forest carpet is distinct. These specific conditions, have given rise to a singular tasting experience: fresh, floral and intense earthy aromas for a LOUIS XIII blend with a singular signature. Discover remarkable notes of dried roses, honey, myrrh, cigar box, plum, honeysuckle, leather, figs and passion fruit that gradually give way to the scent of wet chalk and woody undergrowth and leave nothing but smooth elegance in their wake.
An exceptional LOUIS XIII, the footprint of Time.
