Wine Enthusiast 95 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.
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.
