Name of bottle: Louis XIII de Remy Martin Grande Champagne Cognac

Written on labels: CARAPE No CR 6503

Story: Bought at local Store. Bottle is Stored in safe place until I determine its age, history and value.

 

Answer

General information about bottle: The highest quality Rémy Martin Cognac on the market today, Louis XIII de Remy Martin has been carefully tended by three generations of Remy Martin cellar masters. The result is a magical combination of savoir-faire, art and patience. Louis XIII de Remy Martin uses only grapes from the Grande Champagne region which guarantees its unique, exclusive quality.

Age: since the package of this Cognac has been sold from mid 80’s till 2005, it is very difficult to say the exact age of the caraffe. The content of all Louis XIII Cognacs is between 40 and 105 years old. As we all know, Cognac will not age in glass.

History: The packaging of Louis XIII shares almost as much history as the Cognac itself. The idea for the glass came from an old bottle found by Emile Rémy Martin on a Jarnac battlefield.

Since then, the carafe has evolved into its distinguished shape, manufactured by Baccarat since 1936. A solid gold collar encases the neck, which is adorned by a signature fleur-de-lys crystal stopper. Its Baroque-style glass and design may have been the inspiration for the name Louis XIII, a French king who ruled during the Baroque era. It is also noted that the Rémy Martin family had close connections with King Louis XIII, which serves as another explanation for the Cognac’s name.

Value: the average price range is $1,900 – $2,500 for a 750 ml bottle of Louis XIII when sold in shops. However on websites such as Ebay, the Louis XIII is sold for around $1,200,-
