Description

Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege Alliance N°45 Cognac

Combining the quality of stunning grapes maturation in red barrels, Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege Alliance N°45 Cognac carried every year with grace. This expression has been crafted from a careful blend of two grape varieties: 60% Ugni Blanc and 40% Folle Blanche and like with other expressions from this Maison, the number in the name is a nod to its number of years in oak. The result is multifaceted and rich Cognac, of natural cask strength, displaying the very best characteristics of Grande Champagne. 

The Ragnaud-Sabourin estate was founded in 1850 by Gaston Briand and his son-in-law Marcel Ragnaud. Today, Annie Ragnaud-Sabourin and her son Olivier carry on the family expertise, focusing exclusively on eaux-de-vie produced from their own vines. Sitting on a hill outside the village of Ambleville in the south of Grande Champagne, this wonderful estate may be small, but it is also one of the most prominent houses in Cognac, selling fine eaux-de-vie to a range of larger companies. However, they always make sure to keep the majority for themselves, which is why the House of Ragnaud-Sabourin boasts unusually large stocks of old Cognac - some of which predate the phylloxera epidemic. As a result, they are able to offer a wide selection of high-end releases. 

Few houses dedicate themselves to such a long-term view on their production, but the Ragnaud-Sabourin family know how to plan ahead. The present stocks kept in their cellars represent around fifteen years of future sales - a long-term investment, but always worth the wait. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege Alliance N°45 Cognac comes in a classically elegant slim bottle, with a vintage-style label featuring calligraphy text. 

How to Enjoy Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege Alliance N°45 Cognac

The perfect digestif, this is a wonderful aged Cognac to enjoy in good company, on special occasions, and when you have plenty of time to savor the moment. Pour into a tulip glass and wait a few moments to allow the aromas to fully open up.

Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege Alliance N°45 Cognac

When I first tried Ragnaud Sabourin Vintage 1990, I fell in love with ragnaud sabourin and couldn't wait to buy Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege,
It's a bit spicy at first, but it's a cognac with a long aroma.

Pretty Darn Good

I have been a fan of this cognac house since the 1980's when it was called Marcel Ragnaud. The new proprietor has altered the formulas, aging times and names to make it his own brand. I have tried several of the other Ragnaud Sabourin that have left me unimpressed - mostly on the value front; too expensive for the taste and experience. This one is a good value and pleasing from nose to finish. A particularly long and pleasing finish.
