In this paper, we consider the Gibbs measure associated to a logarithmically correlated random potential (including two-dimensional free fields) at low temperature. We prove that the energy landscape freezes and enters in the so-called glassy phase. The limiting Gibbs weights are integrated atomic random measures with random intensity expressed in terms of the critical Gaussian multiplicative chaos constructed in [Ann. Probab. 42 (2014) 1769–1808 and Comm. Math. Phys. (2013) To appear]. This could be seen as a first rigorous step in the renormalization theory of super-critical Gaussian multiplicative chaos.
