Pure Luxury: Louis XIII Black Pearl by Rémy Martin

Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac is Rémy Martin’s most luxurious cognac. Its bottle is designed by Baccarat and hand-blown from black crystal; the limited-edition bottle retails in stores for between $31,000 and $40,000. Suppose you’d rather sample just an ounce of this sinful treat. If you’re in New York, a shot of Louis XIII Black Pearl can only come at one place and at one price: Rose Club at The Plaza Hotel, for $2,500.

This rare and exquisite cognac is only available for sampling at the Rose Club; such exclusivity comes at a price. At $2,500 per ounce, the 1.75 liter bottle of Louis XIII Black Pearl effectively retails for $80,000; however, the bottle as a whole is not for sale.

A magnum of the fabulous Remy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl, decanted from a single blending cask (tiercon) into just 358 1.5L carafes of Baccarat’s futuristic Black Pearl crystal.

Using only grapes from the Grande Champagne area (which produces the finest cognacs) in the heart of the Cognac region, 100 year old Louis XIII has been carefully tended by four generations of Cellar Masters. The result is a sublime blend of flavours, from passion fruit and honeysuckle to aromatic nutmeg and ginger.

A steel-coloured futuristic crystal, like a fluid held in the light, fascinates those who gaze deeply into it. The silver, black, blue, charcoal and mahogany glints recall the black pearl, the pearl of queens. This crystal, unique in the world, holds a very special Louis XIII cognac that has aged in a century-old ‘tierçon’, one of the oldest casks from the family’s personal reserve.

Louis XIII Black Pearl Magnum pays homage to the intensity of the last century.
