Hardy Noces d’Argent: Celebrate a quarter of a century with Cognac
Conceived as part of the Wedding Anniversary series by the esteemed House of Hardy, the Hardy Noces d'Argent Fine Champagne Cognac is really something quite special. Aged for 25 years, this marvelous marriage of Petite and Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie is proof that as the quality and richness of this exquisite eaux-de-vie improve year after year, reaching an optimum level of finesse and flavor after a quarter of a century in old oak casks. Enjoy the rich, sweet, spicy and smoky tones of this sophisticated Cognac.
Embodying the emotion of times gone by, this prestigious and unique Fine Champagne blend is the ideal gift for someone celebrating a Silver anniversary with their partner. Despite this Cognac being labeled as "Argent" (Silver), it is in fact a double Gold award winner, a testament to its quality and stand-out flavor profile.
A complex and characteristic Cognac, enjoy notes of leather, tobacco and spices on the nose, sweetened by raisin and honey in an extraordinary array of aromas that continue to develop on the second, third, fourth nose... On the palate your senses will enjoy a succession of smoky and spicy flavors in this Silver edition, with a delightfully long finish.

How to Enjoy:
The Hardy Noces d’Argent is a celebration of love and the passing of time, and so it seems only just to enjoy it with loved ones to celebrate a particularly special occasion or anniversary. It is best enjoyed in a snifter or tulip glass, neat and preferably hand warmed to release the smoky, leathery aromas of its deep and complex bouquet.
Presentation of the Bottle:
An delicate yet stand-out decanter-esque bottle reminiscent of a classic cologne, the emblematic Hardy cockerel takes pride place on both the silver stopper and the intricate detailing on the label. It equally comes with a stylish charcoal gray and silver case for presentation and, of course, gifting purposes.

Massively indebted to its wine origins
Jewel-like golden amber in the glass. Wonderful nose, raisin, tobacco, honey, that just keeps getting better. Slightly astringent, slightly fiery, massively indebted to its wine origins. Long finish, low in the palate, lingering sweetness.
A social cognac to be shared around the campfire
This is the newest member of Hardy's Noces-range. It is around 25 years old with a blend of 55% GC and 45% PC. This cognac has a deep golden color, and it has large tears inside the glass. On the nose it is quite rich, I find a lot of darker tones like wood, tobacco and leather, but also some more...
Hardy Noces d´ Argent Fine Champagne
Tasted from a sample of this year´s Advent Calendar: The colour is amber with golden reflections. The nose is nice on tobacco, dried fruits, roasted nuts, toffee and leather. In the mouth this cognac is not very complex, some honey-sweetness, toffee again and the finish is short to medium, ending...
Amazing Cognac for our Silvery Wedding Anniversary
Hardy's is probably my favourite cognac house but little know in the UK. When we visited this year, we were offered Legend and Noces d'Argent "Silver Anniversary" which are both excellent but the real bonus was that it was actually our Silver Anniversary and this is the only cognac my wife has ever...
