Tasting review

Tasting review:

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

Description

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.
