Masterpiece London 2011, in Chelsea
The House of Rémy Martin has launched its latest creation to the UK market: the Louis XIII Le Jeroboam. The launch took place yesterday at Masterpiece London 2011, on the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Louis XIII Le Jeroboam was created to pay tribute to the greatest moments in the history of LOUIS XIII, and to honour the four generations of cellar masters. Le Jeroboam comes with a pipette, the working and tasting tool of the Rémy Martin cellar masters, allowing each owner of the decanter to act out this century-old ceremony which forms the heart of the cellar master’s expertise. Filled with the renowned Louis XIII blend of over 1,200 fine eau-de-vie from the famed Grande Champagne region, the capacity of each Le Jeroboam is three litres, which is four times the volume of the regular Louis XIII decanter. It was created by Cristallerie de Sèvres and comes protected in a brass-bound wooden case or “coffret”.
Only 100 Bespoke Decanters
Limited to just 100 bespoke decanters worldwide this year, Le Jeroboam costs €16,000 and will be available at high-end retailers in September 2011; pre-orders are being taken at the Louis XIII stand at Masterpiece London 2011, which will run until the 5th of July.
Since 1874, Louis XIII has been regarded as the world’s premier luxury Cognac enjoyed by both royalty and world leaders including King George V and Winston Churchill. A unique blend of over 1,200 eaux-de-vie sourced exclusively from Grande Champagne, the most prestigious cru in Cognac, Louis XIII is aged for up to a century in unique barrels known as ‘tierçons’ for ultimate depth and luxurious intensity. Each exquisite handmade Louis XIII crystal decanter is created by a minimum of five expert craftsmen and finished with 24 carat gold.
