LOUIS XIII Magnum 1.5L
The cognac inside a LOUIS XIII Magnum decanter contains a blend of up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne AOC, renowned for its exceptional terroir. Provenance is experienced in every drop. As is the knowledge and expertise of every LOUIS XIII Cellar Master, passed down from one generation to the next. Since 1874, our Cellar Masters have selected the finest eaux-de-vie, aged in century-old oak casks, and blended them to retains the signature taste of LOUIS XIII cognac throughout time.
The Magnum decanter
Our LOUIS XIII Magnum decanter is a large, individually numbered decanter containing 1.5l of LOUIS XIII cognac. No two decanters are the same, as each one is hand-crafted by skilled crystal artisans. The famous design, with its distinctive curves and fleur-de-lys motif, takes inspiration from a 16th-century flask found on the French battlesite of Jarnac.
The founder Paul Emile Rémy Martin acquired it and its design became the foundation for the iconic LOUIS XIII decanters known today, with their 20ct gold necks and distinctive dentelle spikes.
The LOUIS XIII Magnum is beautifully presented in a signature red display case with contemporary design features, and retains the iconic red colour. The coffret offers a new opening experience that recalls the moment in a gastronomic restaurant when the cloche is lifted to reveal the delights within. The coffret comes complete with an integrated mirror display to showcase the decanter in wine stores, restaurants, palaces, hotels and at home, as well as a dedicated booklet to discover more about LOUIS XIII.
Tasting and serving suggestion
The LOUIS XIII cognac tasting experience is a journey that will transport you through time, allowing you to savour the individual notes of up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie.
When serving your cognac, use your LOUIS XIII Spear (otherwise known as a pipette) to extract the amber liquid drop by drop, just as our Cellar Master would. Serve LOUIS XIII cognac at room temperature in the accompanying exclusive LOUIS XIII glasses, specially designed to enhance every nuance of LOUIS XIII cognac.
Allow the cognac to rest in the glass for a few moments as you take in its complex aromas. First from afar, then close to the nose. Place a drop of LOUIS XIII cognac on your lips, allowing it to slowly ignite your palate, then take your time to enjoy, one sip at a time.
LOUIS XIII Tasting notes

Savour the unforgettable flavours that will linger for a long time on your palate, sparking deep- rooted memories and marking a unique moment in time.
