Wine Enthusiast 90 points - The aroma features fig, prune, pastry dough, honey and maple scents. On palate, Louis XIII offers long and intensely woody flavors; additional layers of flavor, including figs, dates, prunes, dried apricot and vanilla, are featured at midpalate. Finishes elegantly, warm, smooth and more oaky than fruity succulent. Only minor rancio. - P.P..October/2007
Blended from 1,200 eaux-de-vie exclusively from the Grande Champagne region, and aged up to 100 years in century-old tiercon barrels, LOUIS XIII is the rarest spirit in the world. Four generations of cellar masters have succeeded each other to produce a cognac with unparalleled aromatic richness and the most complex flavor palate ever achieved.
There are more than 250 discrete flavors that an attentive taster might identify, but never all on the same occasion. Each encounter with Louis XIII will be a fresh discovery.
