Wine Enthusiast 95 points - The aroma features fig, prune, pastry dough, honey and maple scents. On palate, Louis XIII offers long and intensely woody flavors; additional layers of flavor, including figs, dates, prunes, dried apricot and vanilla, are featured at midpalate. Finishes elegantly, warm, smooth and more oaky than fruity succulent. Only minor rancio. - P.P.

The highest quality Cognac made. The nose is of jasmine, old tawny port, cigar box, curry, saffron, nutmeg, passion fruit, violet and tropical fruit. The palate is rich and warm.
Wine maker notes
There are more than 250 discrete flavors that an attentive taster might identify, but never all on the same occasion. Each encounter with Louis XIII will be a fresh discovery.
