Have you heard of AUDRY?
Since its revival, 30 years ago, Audry cognacs have attracted many laudatory reviews. Until recently nearly all of them stressed the fact that we were very discreet and little known. “This discreet house is little known. This does not prevent connoisseurs from appreciating the quality of its production”Cognac dictionnary published by Hatier.
“Audry is a small little-known producer.Their Très Ancienne Grande Champagne reaches the sublime”
The most striking comment was the conclusion of a report about Cognacs issued in Time Magazine by Alice Feiring (December 2005) : "the best cognac you have never heard of is Audry” It was a challenge. We decided to take it up.
The question was : how can we remain the best, or at least among the very best cognacs, and strengthen its reputation ?
The only option was to increase significantly the number of Audry cognac tastings.
Today, as a result, we are rewarded with very positive comments from numerous Guides such as Hachette, Gault Millau, SommelierS International and Isa Bal, Europe’s best sommelier 2008 and with articles in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, London, Paris, Geneva, Moscow, Singapore, Seoul …/…
Last but not least the tasting organized by Tasted in Germany with Andreas Larsson (best sommelier in the world 2007) and Markus del Monego (best world's sommelier 1998).
Our Grande Champagne Réserve Aristide received a score of 94 and is in the top 3.
The Exception received a score of 92.5, the Réserve Spéciale 92, the Memorial 91 and the XO 89 which are impressive results.
Finally, F. Paul Pacult just ranked in 6th position our Exception.
