The house of Hardy owes its name to a 19th century British gentleman, Anthony Hardy. As a wine and spirits professional, Anthony traveled regularly to the Charentes region to monitor quality and secure supplies of Cognac's finest eaux de vie. He fell in love with the region and eventually settled there. He founded Hardy in 1863 and, as a great Francophile, went so far as to adopt the Gallic cockerel as his company emblem.

Over the generations, the rooster grows and develops internationally, mainly in Eastern Europe. Jacques Hardy, 4th generation opens new markets in North America, South America and English-speaking Africa. And, even though the House produces a full range - VS, VSOP, XO - he decides to concentrate mainly on the luxury segment of the market, top-of-the-range Cognacs, presented in crystal decanters. Thus, in 1960, the Anniversaire de Mariage series was born, with "Noces de Perles" (Cognac with an average age of 30 years), "Noces d'Or" (50 years), "Noces de Diamant" (60 years), "Noces d'Albâtre" (75 years), and "Noces d'Argent" (25 years - revisited in 2015).

Today, Bénédicte Hardy embodies the family's fifth generation. She, in turn, has taken up the challenge of creating decanters with a "haute couture spirit", as the brand claims. While the "Five Elements" series - five decanters named "Water", "Flame", "Air", "Earth" and "Light" - created in partnership with Daum crystalware holds a special place in her heart, her real masterstroke was convincing Lalique to participate in the "Four Seasons" range. The "Spring"... See more ...

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%.
