One of our readers has a bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII in Baccarat Crystal complete with matching stopper, paperwork and box. He is trying to sell it for his mother. It has been handed down from his great grandmother who purchased it new in 1957.

Some say this year was particularly special since it was the year that Queen Elizabeth II visited France and was served Remy Louis XIII.

    Hi,

    I am looking to sell an unopened bottle of Louis Xiii Remy Martin Grande Champagne Cognac.

    It is a 50 ml miniature bottle (numbered Baccarat crystal similar to the above) in Red presentation box, with crystal stopper. Also has an exterior card gift box with handle.

    It is a recent edition issued to celebrate the release of the Louis Xiii Jeroboam 3L bottles.

    From what I understand this edition of miniatures are no longer being made and as a result their value has increased significantly already.

    A lot of retailers are selling at current price of £499 however most have sold out due to to the limited numbers.

    If anyone is interested in buying I can supply pictures.

    Many thanks

    Adam

    Dear interested people,
    I have an sealed bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII unopened. The year of the bottle is between 1950-1960.
    The only thing is that there are 3teeth broken on the left side, and it comes without box. Besides that it’s in perfect condition.

    Can you post photos of your bottles and boxes?
    Use “Submit bottle” button below.
    I am interested in your Cognacs.

    Roy:
    With broken fins the bottle value is reduced about 50% to collectors. I will buy it at about half market value of a perfect bottle if you want to sell. My offer is $750. I will resell it to a Louis XIII “drinker” who appreciates old cognac but doesn’t care about the condition of the bottle.

    Nick #16:
    Your bottle and box are from 1953. They were featured on Remy Martin ad from that year. The box should also have a small gold tassel. I believe the mirror was only used in the box that year. Many red and green felt boxes from the mid 1950s but only a few with the mirror shown in the 1953 ad poster.
    Do you still have it? Are you interested in selling? I would pay about $3,000 for it.

    I have two bottles that I would consider selling. One is from Louis XIII from 1938 in perfect condition including the original wicker basket it came in. My grandfather purchased it it 1939 in Beijing China while serving in the merchant marines. (For about $65)
    The other is a newer bottle from around 1965, with crystal stopper and glass.

    Robert:
    I am very interested in both bottles. You should have a look at: https://www.cognac-expert.com/cognac-auction/ to put them for sale. I don’t think there is any way for me to get in touch with you otherwise. This site promotes open bidding on cognacs and does not allow direct communication between buyers and sellers until after a deal has been reached on the public thread.

    Have 1 Louis XIII , Carafe N* 898 for sale. Complete with case. 750ml. Asking $3000. Please email your interest. Pictures available.

    Mark:
    There is no way to contact you. This website requires you to post the bottle for sale via the SUBMIT BOTTLE button at the bottom of this page.

    What kind of case does it have? To sell for $3,000 it needs to be a 1930/1940 Age Inconnu in wicker basket.

    But the 750mL volume (not 4/5 Qt) sounds like a modern bottle (post 1980)… Those resell for around $1,300. $3,000 would be the full retail price.

    I have 2 50 mL Remy Martin Louis III miniatures, unopened, in the original box. I have researched their value, but have no idea where or how I can go about selling them. If anyone has suggestions, please email me. Thank you.

    Karen:
    Nobody can E-mail you because this site does not allow publication of direct contact information.
    Please use the SUBMIT YOUR BOTTLE function at the bottom of the page to send information and pictures to Sebastien who will place your bottles for sale on this site. I suggest several photos including some that show the seal and the cognac level in your bottles as well as the boxes. These will be required to finalize a deal with any serious collector. If these are older 50mL bottles they can be quite valuable.

Im not knowledgable of value, however under the impression that its worth around $10,000. Open to suggestion, and information…Looking to sell.

    I have this for sale,DESCRIPTION
    A Rémy Martin Louis XIII bottled in the 1930’s (presumed). The bottle is still sealed and the level is good. The labels are a slightly damaged but not bad considered the age of this extraordinary bottle.

    Bottom is signed with: ‘Remy Martin & Cie – Cognac France’

    “Paul-Emile Remy Martin, who created this Cognac first in 1874, was also responsible for the remarkable and distinctive bottle, emblazoned with a fleur de lis and with spiky the town of Cognac. From 1874 till 1936 the Louis XIII decanter was made of ordinairy glass. Since 1937 the decanters have been exclusively made in crystal by Baccarat (each is thus signed on the base). Prior to this they were made at the equally famous St Louis glassworks.”

    The importer Joseph H.Reinfeld received a US Liquor Importers License in 1933. He was one of the largest bootleggers during prohibition. The company was rolled into Browne Vintners in the late 1930s and disappeared when Browne Vintners was sold to Seagrams in 1940.

    The seller inherited this bottle from here great aunt. Item is with a green velvet, gold tasseled box in the brown paper bag. Stunning baccarat bottle with wonderful stopper.

    Private Seller from USA. Stored in a dry place. Lying on its side. All duties paid.

    Condition: Everythings seems fine. New and unopened
