How Our Cognac Is Made
Rivente cognac is a new cognac that defies the odds of traditionalism with not only taste but also class.We make Rivente cognac with the elgance that cognac deserves. See how…
Rivente is built on innovation and individuality. Most importantly, the cognac is made with grapes from one of the eight grape varieties grown in one of France’s six vineyard areas.
Our premium, small-batch cognac contains 40% alcohol, it is made with the highest quality grape combination that include 90% Ugni Blace and 10% Colombard. It is double-distilled according to the Charentaise Distillation Method of 1936.
Finally, We take these two bold flavors and blend them together. The result is a super-premium VSOP Cognac of exceptional balance and harmony. We produce our cognac at one fo the few remaining cognac houses in the region. Rivente’ Cognac VSOP is double distilled according to the Charentaise Distillation Method of 1936. Prior to blending, we age 26 individual eaux-de-vies. Master Blender Bertrand Laclie matures his spirits in used oak casks. This process preserves the flavors and avoid the harshness that can come from the tannin in new wood. We source our oak exclusively from the limousin forest. This oak is the most expensive in the world.
Crafted with mixologists in mind, Rivente’ Cognac VSOP is a luxurious blend of eaux-de-vies from three of Cognac’s finest wine-growing regions. Around half the blend is made up of Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, which are Cognac’s two greates crus. The blend is enhanced with Eaux-de-vies from Cognac’s largest cru, Fins Bois, known for their marvelous fruit and floral aromas.
