Eye: An amber, almost copper hue.

Nose: Complex aromas of candied fruits, vanilla, almonds and honey are beautifully complemented by slight hints of mocha and spices.

Palate: Equally as complex as the nose, with similar flavors slowly developing onto the senses. Full-bodied and simply exceptional.

Description

Héritage René Rivière Prestige Hors D’Age Grand Hommage Cognac

Presented in a stunning prestige decanter, this edition of Héritage René Rivière Hors D’Age Grand Hommage Cognac perfectly showcases the quality of single-cru Borderies Cognac. Matured for a minimum of 70 years, it has been independently verified as containing eaux-de-vie that were placed into casks before the First World War and left to age.

This release pays homage to René Rivière, grandfather of the estate’s current owner, who left the Borderies region to fight in the Great War back in 1914. A hero in the eyes of his family and all who know him, his legacy lives on through this limited edition Cognac. The René Rivière estate has been around the Borderies in various forms since 1886, holding over 200 years of history. What makes Héritage René Rivière so unique (and so desirable) is that the land is no longer used to cultivate or harvest grapes to distill eaux-de-vie. Each and every Cognac produced has therefore been extracted from ancient demijohns, some of which have been hidden in the cellar for over 100 years.

Every René Rivière Cognac you purchase is a limited edition, a truly unique drinking experience that would take decades to recreate. 

Presentation of the Bottle

Chosen from a unique and original batch saved since the beginning of the 20th century, the decanter itself is as much a vintage work of art as the liquid contained within. The curved, embossed glass perfectly accentuates the amber hues of the Cognac, topped with deep blue wax and a label delicately placed around the neck. Each decanter is presented in a two-door oak case created by Les Ateliers Drevelle.

How to Serve

The perfect digestif, this is a wonderful Cognac to enjoy in good company, on special occasions, and when you have plenty of time to savor the moment. Pour into tulip glasses and wait a few moments to allow the aromas to fully open up. Try warming the glass before serving neat to allow the flavors to reach their peak upon the first sip; the experts at Réné Rivière believe this is the best way to allow the Cognac to "express all of its richest qualities".
