Here comes another royal Grande Champagne Cognac, a Rémy Martin Très Vieille, Age Inconnu Cognac, also known as Louis XIII. It comes with a rattan basket and is probably from the late 1940s. Decanter and basket are located in New York, USA.

The Reader tells us that “This bottle was a gift from a former colleague following a long and grueling project. It was presented in 1985. It has remained in a dark/cool cellar ever since.”

The label reads: label tied with red/white/blue ribbon to bottle neck: “Ce Cognac Grande Champagne a ete servi au banquet Royal offers a Leurs Majestes Britanniques Le Roi George VI et la Reine Elisabeth au Chateau de Versailles le 21 Juillet 1938″ E. Remy Martin & Co
label on bottle:
Remy Martin Grande Champagne
Très Vieille
Age Inconnu
there are words etched into the bottom of the bottle:
E. Remy Martin & Co Made in France by Baccarat – and the number is etched in as well, which is in the low 100’s
Please pardon any typos – auto correct on my computer keeps changing the spelling on certain words. Also, as you will see on the photo, on the hang tag label, all capital letters are noted in Red, while the body of text is in Black.

    With the word “Baccarat” engraved under the decanter I believe it is 1946 to 1950 era as long as it does not have an engraved Baccarat logo. It is a European version (Age Inconnu). US bottles were already called “Louis XIII” in this time frame (Since 1933). Age Inconnu and Louis XIII Rarest Reserve are exactly the same cognac sold on different continents.
    I would like to see the cognac level in the bottle and be sure that all the glass “fins” on the perimeter are intact.
    Pending confirmation of a good level and good condition I can offer $3,000 for this bottle. I am located in the USA.

    I am sorry for any confusion, but this bottle was no longer available by the time Cognac-Expert finally published this listing. Thank you for your interest.
