An old blend of spirit from Hardy, bringing together 40 different Grande Champagne cognacs aged for at least 50 years before bottling. Noces d'Or means, appropriately, Golden Wedding, 50 years of marriage.
A very special release of pre-phylloxera cognac from the 1848 vintage, the year of the February Revolution in France which led to the Second Republic ruled by Napoleon III. Bottled in 2002 from the private collection of the company's former chairman Jacques Hardy.
Part of Hardy's Essential Elements Perfection series, Lumière (Light in English) is blended from pre-phylloxera cognac put aside by house founder Antoine Hardy in the 1870s. Distilled from 100% Colombard grapes all from the area now known as Grande Champagne this is an incredible, rare old cognac.
