Louis XIII Bonbon – Fine Douceur

28 May 2012 No Comment

At the Rémy Martin FUTUR HERITAGE Exposition #1 we saw some Louis XIII Cognac Chocolate we couldn’t resist posting about! These beautiful chocolates with the Louis XIII carafe design and Louis XIII liquor inside are designed and devised by Melissa Duboc and Sebastian Popa. Cheers to them!

They event made some special editions of the Fine Douceur Louis XIII Bonbon, the Louis XIII Ice Bonbon, the Golden Bonbon and the Sphere Bonbon.

Fine Douceur

Fine Douceur by Melissa Duboc and Sebastian Popa interprets cognac tasting in the form of a tempting chocolate candy.
The concept and its many variations, intended for an amateur public, suggest a sweet and simple learning process. Each candy holds the incomparable aromas and flavours of cognacs. The chocolate candy, taking the form of an iconic Rémy Martin carafe, is made of exceptionally fine chocolate wrapped around a cognac centre.

Ice Bonbon

The candy is frozen in ice.
Once the ice has melted, the cognac sweet can be enjoyed.
The anticipation thus creates the surprise.



Bonbon, Gold Limited Edition

The ultimate experience. The chocolate, with a cognac centre, is swathed in gold leaf.



Sphere Bonbon

A service object designed for use in restaurants. A glass sphere set in the middle of the table reveals two chocolates placed on spoons and ready to be savoured. A veritable showcase for the new ritual of tasting tête-à-tête.
