The first LOUIS XIII L’Odyssée d’un Roi was auctioned in New York City by Sotheby’s for a total of $134,750. This is the highest sale ever of a decanter of LOUIS XIII and the proceeds will benefit The Film Foundation, an organization that was founded by Martin Scorsese and other leading filmmakers, with the mission of preserving classic cinema. This record is an important milestone in the 142-year history of La Maison de Rémy Martin and will certainly contribute to establish LOUIS XIII as a true icon of luxury.
LOUIS XIII L’Odyssée d’un Roi is a unique collaboration inspired by the first shipments of LOUIS XIII in the late 1870’s and the iconic journeys that followed to the farthest corners of the globe. LOUIS XIII selected, as its traveling companions, three French luxury houses that share the brand’s passion for rare craftsmanship and unbroken tradition, HERMÈS, PUIFORCAT and SAINT-LOUIS. They have contributed their own centuries-old savoir-faire to the creation of a series of three unique masterpieces. These one-of-a-kind treasures have been presented in cities around the world as part of a yearlong travelling exhibition.
Each bespoke trunk designed and hand-crafted by Hermès features a crystal magnum decanter with an exclusive blend of LOUIS XIII Cognac enriched by a selection of the House's most precious eaux-de-vie, and etched with a 19th-century map of the Americas, four tasting glasses by Saint-Louis, all hand-blown and etched with 19th-century maps of different countries within the Americas and a white gold pipette crafted and engraved by Puiforcat.
It was the first of three exclusive auctions with Sotheby’s and is followed by Hong Kong on October 1st and London on November 16th.
We are very pleased that LOUIS XIII L’Odyssée d’un Roi continues the journey of the iconic spirit and its dedication to excellence, craftsmanship and rarity.Read More

THE 1998 HARVEST
The wine-growing season was marked by extremes, with few grapes, burnt by the sun, in a spectacularly hot August and especially gray, rainy weather during the first two weeks of September. Postponing the harvest allowed to take advantage of the miraculous spell of good weather that followed. That decision defined the creation of the vintage. When the harvest began on September 21, the grapes were perfectly ripe and healthy.

The Syndicate blend contains 18 Single Malt Whiskies and 4 Single Grain Whiskies. The quality and consistency of the blend has been maintained over the years by operating a ‘Solera’ system whereby when additional 12 year Old whiskies are added they are reblended with the older stock.
Thus the Syndicate blend still contains small quantities of the original 1958 blend. One of the things that sets the Syndicate blend apart from other blends is that it is ‘married’ and finally matured for up to 2 years in 4 year old Oloroso Sherry casks which we import from the Spanish region of Andalucia.
This final marrying and maturation process serves to give the Syndicate blend its exceptionally smooth and distinctive taste.

EXPRESSION OF A GREAT HISTORY
Commemorating 250th anniversary, The Hennessy 250 Collector Blend pays full tribute to two-and-a-half centuries of excellence, international expansion, and visionary passion.
A SINGULAR AGEING METHOD
This distinctive cognac is the product of an exceptional blending and aging process, born of the creative inspiration of Hennessy Master Blender Yann Fillioux. It is an expertly assembled blend of eaux-de-vie aged 15-35 years, selected to achieve a harmony between power, vivacity, and elegance. The blend completed its aging in ideal conditions: resting in 250 specially crafted barrels of 250 liters each, carefully stored at ground level near the banks of the river Charente.

Tasting the Wine
The basics of wine tasting, whether it is in a tasting room, wine store or at a party, include how to taste the wines. Here are some fundamental facts about wine tasting:
1.) When the wine is poured, look at it, especially around the edges. Holding the glass by the stem and tilting the glass makes it easier to see the way the color changes from the center to the edges.
2.) Sniff the wine so that you can compare the fragrance after swirling it.
3.) Gently swirl the wine in the glass. This increases the surface area of the wine allowing it to reach your nose. It also allows for oxygen into the wine, helping the aroma to open up.
4.) While swirling the wine, note how slowly it runs back down the side of the glass. This is how you note the wine’s Viscosity. More viscous wines are known to have “legs” and are most likely to have higher alcohol content.
5.) Sniff. Hold the wine glass a few inches from your nose and then let your nose go into the wine glass. Note any fragrance you may smell.Read More
