Louis XIII The Ultimate Sensorial Experience
The Spirit: Louis XIII
Louis XIII is a cognac that is manufactured using wine grapes from the Grande Champagne territory of Cognac, France. It is blended from 1200 eaux de vie, from 40 to 100 years old. It is aged in tierçons (oak barrels that are several hundred years old) in its own cellar and typically retails around $3,000 per bottle in the U.S.
The Decanter: A modern and contemporary interpretation by Designer Christophe PILLET
Looking to conceive a genuine family of objects, Christophe Pillet designed each of his creations by linking them to his experience of LOUIS XIII, with special attention devoted to the way they relate to the light.
"I took into consideration the fact that LOUIS XIII cognac is often enjoyed in settings where the light is somewhat filtered. Hence the importance of using these accessories as catalysts of light to reinforce the exclusive nature of the moment experienced," points out the designer.
To achieve this, Christophe Pillet based his design on highly elaborately worked features and on the use of noble materials such as crystal and polished and brushed stainless steel - symbols of the excellence and craftsmanship in the service of luxury.
