The Remy Martin Black Pearl Louis XIII Cognac, made with carefully selected grapes from Grande Champagne, was auctioned for £100,000 in 2012. Made from a blend of 1200 eaux de vie that are between 40 and 100 years old and matured in an ancient tierçon, the bottle was designed by Baccarat and hand-blown from black crystal in tribute to the signature Louis XIII decanter modelled on a flask found in Cognac during the sixteenth century.
