LOUIS XIII scales new heights with a spectacular masterpiece paying tribute to outstanding craftsmanship. A rare collector’s item by its magnitude and uniqueness, LOUIS XIII LE SALMANAZAR is a one-and-only edition which embodies the pinnacle of crystalmaking art, the first ever 9-liter crystal decanter, crafted by Baccarat.
LOUIS XIII LE SALMANAZAR is a decanter at the summit of its art, unique in its mastery, size and stature. This landmark decanter called for over 20 master crystal-craftsmen to handle over 15 kilos of crystal, combining the skills of an elite body of artisans, Meilleurs Ouvriers de France and one of Baccarat’s Chevaliers de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, who drew from the infinite sculptural possibilities brought by crystal.
From the blaze of the furnace to the calm atelier, the dentelles and the fleur-de-lys stopper were molded by the master crystal artists, the medallion delicately curved to espouse the unique shape of the decanter.
LOUIS XIII LE SALMANAZAR is presented in an elegant display chest featuring 8 crystal glasses housed in a dedicated case, a serving platter and a specially designed spear. With this ancestral tool, used by generations of Cellar Masters to sample and serve the LOUIS XIII blend, the owner of this unique nine-liter masterpiece will relive the full experience of a privileged tasting ritual that defies time itself.
Never before had Baccarat conceived a LOUIS XIII masterpiece of the sheer magnitude of LOUIS XIII LE SALMANAZAR which is available at a price of 2.8 million RMB (450 000 USD approx.) at the world’s only and exclusive LOUIS XIII Boutique in Beijing.
