A creative limited-edition of 2000 numbered decanters commemorating this historical year, when Paris hosted the World Fair, celebrating the arts and craftsmanship of the city of lights.
In 1900, The Paris World Fair brought together 83,000 exhibitors to France so they could present their vision of the world 100 years ahead. Thanks to his founder Paul-Émile Rémy Martin, who was an active member of the Paris Universal Exposition jury, LOUIS XIII was presented and received the highest praise. An entry in the new century with prestige, alongside the Monnaie de Paris who minted over 40 000 medals awarded throughout the 210 days event.
Today, with this unique limited edition, LOUIS XIII, The Monnaie de Paris and Saint-Louis have come together to capture the imprint of Time in the creation of lasting value. The decanter is a reedition of the original bottle inspired by a flask found on the battlefield of Jarnac fought in 1569.
It features 13 dentelle spikes instead of the usual 10, a stopper in the form of an upturned decanter, an elegant neck and 7 fleurs-de-lys decorated with an 18 carats champagne gold, as well as a central medallion showcasing the LOUIS XIII TIME COLLECTION: TRIBUTE TO CITY OF LIGHTS – 1900 unique medal. The champagne-gold metal coffret presents a new medal design on each corner.
This collectors’ piece is sure to be treasured forever as it is a must-have for all connoisseurs. Not just that, it will also provide to clients seamless access to an exclusive world of privileges thanks to the integration of NFC technology on the cork stopper. Each decanter will directly connect clients to the LOUIS XIII Society*, a private club where members can enjoy exclusive content, unique experiences and personalized services through their smartphones.
