LOUIS XIII Le Salmanazar
A landmark creation and decanter at the peak of art is unique in its mastery, size and stature, the creation called for over 20 master crystal-craftsmen to handle the over 15 kilos of crystal. With skills drawing from this elite body of artisans and their combined expertise worked together through the blaze of the furnace to the calm atelier, each aspect from the dentelles to the fleur-de-lys stopper, all molded by the master crystal artists, choreographed and executed with finesse. To accomplish this great challenge, that only masters could create, LOUIS XIII turned to Baccarat, creators of the first LOUIS XIII decanter.
With only one in existence, who will be the one to own this rare and awe-inspiring masterpiece?
“Innovation is written in the legacy renowned for rising to the greatest challenges and utmost heights. Today LOUIS XIII creates a decanter so rare there is only one in the world. A collectors Masterpiece, this exquisitely unique Decanter stands at the ultimate symbol of history and tradition and passion for rare craftsmanship.” said Ludovic du Plessis, Louis XIII Global Executive Director.
Since its origins in 1874, each generation of Cellar Masters, custodians of this elixir, selects from their cellars the oldest most precious eaux-de-vie for LOUIS XIII. Vital for the legacy, each transmits their knowledge from master to apprentice and no Cellar Master tastes the fruits of their art, only together do they leave behind the legacy for future connoisseurs. The LOUIS XIII Le Salmanzar is a tribute to their collective passions that honors their achievements on an unprecedented scale.
