MASTER OF TIME / LOUIS XIII COGNAC AGEING PROCESS

LOUIS XIII Cognac
Ageing Process

The LOUIS XIII tierçon is a cask originally designed for the carriage of cognac on horse-drawn carts, three casks at a time, hence the name. LOUIS XIII traditionally uses casks made of Limousin oak, which have the perfect tannins and porosity for the ageing of eaux-de-vie.

Ageing entails a continuous exchange between spirit and outside air, and the tierçon has the most perfect form for this purpose.

The Cellar Master will inspect and sample each cask every year, judging evolution with an expert nose and selecting certain casks to be blended with certain others.

Over the years and decades, hundreds of eaux-de-vie marry in this fashion as each generation of LOUIS XIII Cellar Master selects from our cellars the finest and most precious eaux-de-vie for LOUIS XIII. Today, Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau is setting aside our finest eaux-de-vie, as a legacy to his successors for the coming century.


Each decanter is the life achievement of generations of Cellar Masters.
