My boyfriend received this bottle from his grandfather years ago. The grandfather has since passed away, so we can’t asked when he received it. We’ve been trying to determine its age and value. The front label reads:
GRANDE CHAMPAGNE LOUIS XIII BRAND
E. Remy Martin & Co – Cognac
The back label reads:
Distilled and bottled by E. REMY MARTIN & Co- Cognac, 4/5 Quart, 80 Proof
Imported by RENFIELD IMPORTERS LTD., UNION N.J.
Printed in France, Product of France
The US Internal Revenue Distilled Spirits stamp across the top is numbered 300206311 and lists RENFIELD IMPORTERS, LTD., UNION, N.J.
The word “depose” is on the bottom in raised letters. In white letters on the bottom:
Top line: “E. REMY MARTIN & CIE” (the IE is underlined and in superscript)
next line: COGNAC, FRANCE, bottom line: MADE IN FRACE BY BACCARAT
There is also a white Baccarat mark on the bottom. There is no box or crystal stopper, but the gold ribbon around the neck appears to be original.
Thank you for your comments.
