One hundred years after its foundation, Maison Audry is a proud to initiate a new journey with a first lot of cognac 100% Grande Champagne 78. The Collection is the purest expression of our savoir-faire perpetuated since 1878.
The first release is a rare eau-de-vie, a very old Grande Champagne 78. This 49,4% “brut de fût” is a single cask 78 with an exquisite aromatic palette, a sensory voyage, an invitation to contemplation.
Collection 78 features only 288 numbered decanters in limited edition, with its own handcrafted ceramic headdress.
A first gourmet nose of candied fruits, apricots, figs. Once opened in the glass, subtle notes of mango compote and ripe apples appear, followed by pastry aromas, custard, and orange blossom. The olfactory finish takes you to fresh wood and cigar box notes.
The palate reveals light tannin and great length, with a dominance of very ripe fruit that gives its beautiful naturally sweet roundness. A very slightly toasted hint on the finish.
In a word, an outstanding and venerable Grande Champagne with a light rancio that has preserved all its fruit and freshness for great sweetness and a silky finish.
