The Hardy Lalique Cuvée Bénédicte Grande Champagne is something truly special. It's a Grande Champagne Cognac that was harvested before the First World War. The eaux-de-vie has spent all those years quietly aging in oak barrels until just the right moment. This was in 1983, when it was bottled by Jacques Hardy.
But is wasn't any old bottle - oh no. This was a leather casket and a unique crystal carafe, designed by Marie-Claude Lalique. Only 333 were produced, each signed by Bénédicte Hardy and are, naturally, a true collectors item.
Of course, the Cognac within the carafe is just as much of a masterpiece. Old, enchanting, and the epitome of the word 'finesse'. This is a Cognac that's a limited edition in every sense of the meaning. Sure to increase in value, this is one for the collector's out there.

Eye: Amber mahogany
Nose: Aromatic and rich, scents of wood, nuts, and cigar boxes
Palate: Wonderfully smooth, hints of Charente rancio, developing into spiciness, cherry stone, and notes of prune. The finish is long and enchanting
With a history dating back to 1863, Cognac Hardy is well known for quality cognacs and traditional production methods. Passed down throughout the generations, this family house of cognac, which can be recognized by its rooster logo, was one of the very first to embrace the spoils of a worldwide distribution network. Thanks to the love of an entrepreneurial Englishman for the French Charentaise countryside, Cognac Hardy boasts a 150 year history of providing a range of cognacs to the four corners of the globe.
