A Grande Champagne cognac that was born before the First World War. Bottled in 1983 by Jacques Hardy, it is kept in a leather casket and a prestigious crystal carafe designed by Marie-Claude Lalique. This limited edition cognac, of which only 333 were produced, bears the signature of Bénédicte Hardy.
Amber mahogany appearance with warm, deep tints. On the nose it has an aromatic richness which is expressed in scents of wood, nuts and cigar boxes. Wonderfully smooth on the palate with hints of the Charente rancio flavour, developing into spicy, cherry stone and prune notes. The long and enchanting finish offers the exceptional finesse of very old eaux-de-vie.
Maison Hardy owes its name to an authentic English gentleman, Anthony Hardy. Like any conscientious wine and spirit merchant, Hardy liked to get out of London as often as he could and head down to Charente to check on the progress of the finest Cognac crus. He finally succumbed to the region’s charms in 1863, relocating permanently and founding Maison Hardy. Today Bénédicte Hardy represents the fifth generation of Hardy Cognac makers. As Maison Hardy’s international ambassador, she has worked to build the company’s reputation in the USA. We are excited to work with Maison Hardy as exclusive agents in the UK.
