Provenance: Tajan, 6/1/1997

Maxim's is the name of a restaurant in Paris, France, located at No. 3 of the rue Royale. It is known for its Art Nouveau interior decor. Maxim's was founded as a bistro in 1893 by Maxime Gaillard, formerly a waiter. It became one of the most popular and fashionable restaurants in Paris under its next owner, Eugene Cornuché. Cornuché gave the dining room its Art Nouveau decor and made sure that it was always filled with beautiful women. Cornuché was accustomed to say: "An empty room... Never! I always have a beauty sitting by the window, in view from the sidewalk." Maxim's was also immensely popular with the international celebrities such as Aristotle Onassis, Maria Callas, the Duke of Windsor, Brigitte Bardot (she created a scandal when she entered the restaurant with bare feet), Sylvie Vartan, John Travolta, Jeanne Moreau, Barbra Streisand. It was during the fifties, sixties and seventies that Maxim's, under the management of Louis Vaudable, became the most famous restaurant in the world but one of the most expensive ones as well. Fashion designer Pierre Cardin bought Maxim’s after a rich Arab had offered to buy the restaurant. They were upset at the idea of it falling into foreign hands. Under the management of Cardin an Art Nouveau museum was later created on three floors of the building. 1830: France invades Algeria. The revolution of July 1830 created a constitutional monarchy. On August 2, Charles X and his son abdicated their rights to the throne and departed for Great Britain. A distant cousin, Louis Philippe was placed on the throne. He agreed to rule as a constitutional monarch. This period became known as the July Monarchy. This renewed French Revolution lead to separation and the establishment of the Kingdom of Belgium. The United States Congress passes the Indian Removal Act, authorizing the President to negotiate with Native Americans in the United States for their removalfrom their ancestral homelands.

Cognac

Renowned throughout the world, the production of Cognac has been regulated by its very own AOC since 1909. Only liqueurs from eaux-de-vie made from crus from the controlled appellation area of Cognac can be labelled as such. This liqueur must be distilled and aged on-site in compliance with authorised techniques: double distillation in a copper Charentais still, ageing in oak barrels for a set minimum ageing period.

A good Cognac is subjected to a complex manufacturing process. It is never made from the eau-de-vie of a single cru, but from a `marriage' of eaux-de-vie that vary in age and cru - some as old as a hundred. To establish the age of a Cognac, only the number of years spent in oak casks or barrels are taken into account. As soon as an eau-de-vie is decanted into a glass recipient, it ceases to age. The longer it is left to age, the more a Cognac gains in complexity, fragrance, aromas and taste (spiced, pepper and cinnamon flavours).

Please note that only Cognacs made exclusively from Petite and Grande Champagne (50% minimum) can use the "Fine Champagne" appellation.
