A reader has a cognac bottle of Rémy Martin Louis XIII Grande Champagne at home.
The bottle is located in Arnold, MD USA. The Reader writes “My father-in-law who resided in NJ was known to love his cognac and whiskey so he was given this beautiful bottle of Rémy Martin as a gift from a work associate; not sure as to the time frame. In 1994 he passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. When my mother-in-law downsized her home in 1999 she passed the bottle on to us since she was strictly a red wine drinker. It has sat in it’s red case enveloped in it’s cushion of foam along with a sheet detailing the history of the case; opened a mere 2-3 times in our household to ogle the beautiful bottle and fondly remember our father-in-law. We have been struggling with the idea on how to fund a car for our niece who is going off to college on a scholarship she earned and is in need of a car. The bottle came to mind and we thought maybe now is the time to let it go so that our father-in-law’s well deserving granddaughter he never had the opportunity to meet could benefit from it’s sale. The bottle has resided in NJ and the past 4 years been in MD upon our move; always residing in a dry, dark cupboard.”
