Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6: A Unique Adventure Of The Outer Limits Of Sensation

In the history of Louis XIII, the extraordinary moment of a Rare Cask unveiling has only happened once before.

Now by the grace of nature, for the second time, Louis XIII is delighted to reveal the spectacular Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6, discovered by the gifted Cellar Master, Pierrette Trichet.

Exquisite and Rare

There will never be more than 738 decanters worldwide and each is hand engraved with an individual number. Every exquisite Louis XIII Rare Cask is made out of precious black Baccarat crystal – Rare Cask’s signature, created by 20 expert craftsmen, who have to execute the most challenging colour to which the art of crystal can aspire. A rose gold decor dresses the neck of the decanter, crowned by a black crystal stopper.

Refined and Precious

Like all Louis XIII editions, the Rare Cask has aged for up to a century in unusual ancient casks known as ‘tierçons’. However, it was when the cognac had reached its final phase of refinement that Pierrette discovered an astonishing exception to the precious spirit; she knew she was experiencing the spontaneous distinctive characters of a Rare Cask. The precise cause of a Rare Cask is still an entire mystery; although it is certain that there would be no Rare Cask without the extraordinary sensibilities of a Louis XIII Cellar Master like Pierrette, who possess a rare talent to uncover the exception when nature sees fit to present it.

Tasting Notes

Louis XIII is a blend of fully 1,200 eaux-de-vie, 100 years in the making. The reward is a cognac of truly extraordinary aromatic richness and complexity, with a multitude of long-aged nuances that no person can fully decipher at a single encounter. Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6 celebrates these delights and more, with salient aromas that are unique to this one precious cask – notes of plums and dates, mingling with flavours of gingerbread, prune stone and ginger, punctuated by a final touch of tobacco leaf.

Limited Availability

The unique Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6 will be available exclusively by the glass from June in great establishments such as The Arts Club and 45 Park Lane (Dorchester Collection), and can be purchased at fine wine & spirit boutiques such as Harrods or Hedonism Wines from September 2013; RRP £15,000.
