Hardy – Noces d’Argent – Cognac  - Fine Champagne

The nose is fine, fruity, gourmand, elegant and offers power as well as deepness. It reveals notes of candied peach, candied mandarin zests and slight touches of apple in syrup, quenelle/exotic fruits associated with touches of rancio, caramel, cigare as well as a subtle hint of violet, grilled oak and gray pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, fat, slightly suave, nicely elegant, a bit aerial, slightly powerful (full of balance) and offers fleshy, a very fine juiciness as well as a very discreet acid frame (in the background). In the mouth this Cognac expresses notes of candied mandarin, candied pear and slight notes of dried orange zests, apple in syrup, candied pear associated with touches of pâtisseries, caramel as well as a subtle hint of black tea/flowers, grilled oak, roasting almond and chocolate. Good length.
