Rémy Martin-Louis XIII Black Pearl-Magnum
Grande Champagne.

1 Baccarat crystal decanter


Black Pearl was created as an homage to the very beginnings of LOUIS XIII. This unique tierçon No. C.100-46, with eaux-de-vie matured between 40 to 100 years of age, of the family's reserve in the Domaine de Merpins, was selected to produce this important Louis XIII large format: a contemporary 'Black Pearl' version of the original metal flask that inspired Paul-Émile Rémy Martin when he created LOUIS XIII in 1874. To craft this superb metallic decanter, the House of Baccarat treated the crystal using a unique plating technique. This gives the decanter a beautiful reflective quality, with myriad subtle contrasts of light and dark dancing across its surface. Achieving this dichroic effect involves layering successive thin coatings of precious materials (titanium, carbon and gold) one upon the other. The result is a true work of art.
