« Big brother » of Louis XIII Black Pearl, the reinvention of the Louis extremely characteristic curves that would influence, in the late 19th century, the shape of the carafe that we know today and that, made of glass in 1874, would be transformed into crystal in 1936.
The carafe symbolises Louis XIII and reveals a legend that crosses four centuries without unveiling its mystery. It is said that this “bottle” was acquired in 1850 by Paul-Émile Rémy Martin I, from a peasant who supposedly found it on the site of the battle of Jarnac in 1569, which pitted the duke of Anjou against the prince of Condé. The Louis XIII carafe, which since 1874 has encased the golden nectar in the light of glass, will become an icon at the four corners of the world. Each piece, in the style of an haute couture creation, is numbered and hand blown, requiring the successive skills of eleven exceptional craftsmen. Richly decorated with fleurs-de-lis, the crystal carafe reveals and enhances the precious elixir that it contains.
