Rémy Martin Louis XIII Bottling Note
A truly stunning Cognac from Rémy Martin. It is blended from around 1,200 different eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne appellation, and some of the spirit was distilled more than 100 years ago.
This is a favourite of Elton John, Christian Dior and even Winston Churchill, who celebrated his election with it in 1951. It was served to Queen Elizabeth II in the Versailles Palace to celebrate her visit of 1957.
You get what you pay for. About as smooth as it gets. If you enjoy cognac and take the plunge and buy it, you will not be disappointed. It's like drinking silk. Each decanter has a unique serial number, which you can enter on the Louis XIII web-site to gain access to their club, tasting events, etc. Anyone who enjoys fine cognac should try this more than once in their lifetime. Truly lovely; not found better yet.

I had a glass on my 45th birthday, given from a generous friend who had 3 bottles at home. Superb aroma, rich taste. It practically warms up the body for few days. Couldn't ask for more as a glass itself cost $500 in my country :)

Had a few drops of this to cap off a trip. It's absolutely lovely nectar, flowery and fruity with an aroma that just keeps on giving and giving. Very rich, very smooth, and very delicious. I wanted to live inside that snifter. Magnificent.
