One of our US readers sent us photos of his Grande Fine Champagne Louis XIII bottle! Another one… You’ve got a bottle!
(If you also have a bottle you would like to submit, please use our form)
The bottle belongs to my daughter’s friend. Her friend’s father left it to her friend some twenty years ago at age of 80-85. How he obtained it I cannot remember. The picture of the bottom shows ” 32 ” etched on it. The bottle stays in its original green velvet case.
The Certification Tag reads “This Cognac Grande Champagne was served at the Royal Banquet given to their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II at the Chateau de Versailles on July 21st 1938 It is the finest brandy procurable E. REMY MARTIN & Co Printed in France “.
Across the front of the bottle is diagonally printed from lower left to upper right ” PRODUCT of FRANCE “.
The Front Label reads:
Grande Fine Champagne
Produce Louis XIII Brand 4/5 Quart
France Rarest Reserve 80 Proof
Distillled and bottled by E. REMY MARTIN & Co – Cognac France Established 1724 Printed in France
The Back Label reads:
IMPORTED BY RENFIELD IMPORTERS LTD., NEWARK, N.J. DISTRIBUTED BY RENFIELD IMPORTERS LTD,. NEW YORK, N.Y. printed in France
I would like to know the oldest cognac blended in this bottled. Does ” 32 ” add anymore to it value or historic importance? Last but not least, with case and certificate and all the labels in PRISTINE condition, what is this 1938 Grande Champagne Cognac set ” 32 ” worth? Yes I know it is made of Baccarat Crystal. Thank you VERY much.
