With its chalky, stony soil and sunny temperate climate the region is perfect for vine growing.For Hennessy, the cru is made up mostly of Ugni Blanc grapes, which have prevailed as the dominant grape in the Cognac region. Only the eau-de-vie from the first four crus is used due to its fruity, light white wine ideal for distillation.The grapes are pressed to get the juice which is left to ferment for two or three weeks using modern fermentation processes, usually in October. Yeast is added to the juice, which helps convert the sugar in the juice into alcohol of about 7% to 8%.Order a bottle of Rivente Cognac today and taste the difference for yourself!
