Renault Heritage Collection Vintage 1989 Petite Champagne Cognac
Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
The Renault Heritage Collection Vintage 1989 Petite Champagne Cognac is the first in a new series by the Cognac house. Only 600 bottles of this expression have been created, so it's definitely one for the collector. As its title suggests, this is a pure Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie from the harvest of 1989. Renault say that this was an exceptional year for the Cognac produced, and is a favorite of the Renault's cellar master, David Croizet. he says of the vintage, "The Petite Champagne has remarkable finesse and shows off the greatness of the terroir".
The Cognac is presented in a stylish, contemporary bottle and smart presentation box adorned with a gold colored plaque. For such a quality Cognac it represents excellent value for money, and would make a wonderful gift for any Cognac connoiseur.
Outstanding Vintage Cognac
Renault Heritage Collection 1989 is a rare vintage Cognac, most of which are blends. It was produced from 100% Petite Champagne in lightly toasted oak, is 26 YR, and produced 600 Bottles. This is an elegant Cognac, with lovely fruit on the nose, which seems enhanced from the light oak influence. This also shows great finesse, but with a surprisingly long finish in the mouth-feel and finish. Renault said that 1989 was an exceptional year for the Cognac produced, and this Vintage Cognac supports that!!
Renault is love!
I love Renault and this one has not disapointed: over 20 years of oak barrel (and you can tell it's toasted wood) have left their mark on this fine eau de vie. Very smooth cognac and a very special edition. if you love vintage and cognac from the Petite champagne growth area, go for this one.
About Renault Cognac
The house of Renault Cognac (sometimes referred to as Renault & Co Cognac) has a history that can be traced back to 1835. The house was founded by one Jean-Antonin Renault at the tender age of 25. Mr Renault came from a long line of Charentais merchants, and living in the centre of the town of Cognac it made sense that he moved into the production of eaux-de-vie.
