Renault Carte Noire VSOP Cognac
The Renault Carte Noire VSOP Cognac is produced using a recipe that was created in 1876. Still used today, this is one of the oldest recipes in the world and is characterized by its smooth, rich, and elegant profile. This VSOP is made using a mix of eaux-de-vie selected from the prestigious Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne region. Complexity is brought by the eaux-de-vie selected from the Borderies, and the intensity and fruitiness of the Cognac from the eaux-de-vie of the Fins Bois and Bons Bois that are added into the blend. This truly is a top-notch, quality blend, that represents outstanding value for money.
The Renault Cognac story dates all the way back to 1835 when Jean Antonin Renault, a 25-year-old Charentais businessman created the brand in the town of Cognac. He appreciated great quality Cognac and was the first to ship his Cognac in glass bottles to guarantee that it kept its delicate flavor and original taste. As a great voyager, he sold Cognac on his travels to Germany, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Iceland, the Americas and Asia. Today the Renault Cognac is under new ownership and produces both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne Cognacs.
Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in a contemporary, sleek decanter Carte Noir VSOP is the perfect expression to put on display for all to see. Its smooth lines and soft curves allow the form of the decanter to stand out with elegance. Meanwhile, its bright amber color with golden glimmers steals the show in contrast to the bottle’s simple label design and typography. A beautifully presented Cognac and a true treat to add to any drinks cabinet - the ideal gift for a Cognac enthusiast.
How to enjoy
This VSOP is equally as good neat, as it is a special addition to your favorite cocktail. Or if you fancy a slightly different taste experience, why not serve it over ice?

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.
