HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
Wishing all our Chinese friends health, wealth and happiness for 2019! Treat yourself - it’s the year of the Pig: a symbol of good fortune and prosperity. A year to indulge in the best things in life. The passing of one year and the beginning of the next is always an auspicious occasion. A moment to savor the fruit of our past endeavors and set new goals for the future. In China, people traditionally celebrate by paying a visit to their grandparents and elders bearing gifts. In return, the younger generation receive a special red envelope with money to “anchor the year”. In this lucky year of the Pig, why not offer them a red coffret of LOUIS XIII cognac to mark all that has been and all that is to come. Each drop of LOUIS XIII will take you on an inner journey, on a quest for sensations, in search of all the aromas of time. It's an intense moment of sharing. Everyone reveals something of themselves. A dégustation can be extremely intimate; one unveils a part of one’s inner self.
Every minute, every second counts during the tasting ritual. After removing the fleur-de-lys stopper from the fine decanter, slowly pour the amber liquid into a dedicated glass and place the first drop on your lips to prepare the palate. Then take a second drop and let the wave rise. Suddenly, it’s as if Time is suspended. The aromas and flavors of up to 1200 eaux de vie aged in centennial tierçons watched over by generations of Cellar Masters will transport you, sparking reminicences and creating new shared memories to treasure forever. 新年快乐. Xīn nián kuài lè. Happy New Year!
