In 1891, in Saint Petersburg, the house Hardy received the gold medal of the alliance as a tribute to the Franco-Russian friendship.
Today the House Hardy is directed by a fifth generation.
Description Hardy Legend Le Coq 1863.
This is a Cognac blend whose wines have been harvested from very chalky soils, a guarantee of authenticity and quality because only chalky soils are capable of giving birth to exceptional wines which, distilled and aged in French oak barrels, will yield exceptional Cognacs.
La robe is amber.
In both nose and mouth: initial attack of spring white flowers with hints of citrus and candied orange. Followed by notes of coffee and mocha harmoniously coated with a hint of vanilla. The finish is very long, with hints of leather and musk finishing on a woody vanilla note.
Dining pairing/Cognac: very pleasant in a cocktail with a citrus Schweppes.
It will also go very well on an ice cube with a Perrier. Pleasant with a small Davidoff cigar.
Bottles should be stored upright in a cellar away from light and noise with a hydrometric degree of around 70%.
