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.

LOUIS XIII Tasting suggestion

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 the finest and most precious 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

LOUIS XIII Tasting notes

LOUIS XIII cognac should be tasted drop by drop. It opens on the palate in a burst of floral, fruit and spice aromas. As you taste, take time to appreciate the evolution of these flavours, which linger on the palate for up to one hour.

You can taste the art of time from the very first drop, its unmistakable woody notes evocative of aged oak casks, and years of artistry leading to an explosion of floral, fruity and spicy notes, including dried roses, honey, myrrh, cigar box, plum, honeysuckle, leather, figs and passion fruit. 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.
