Ragnaud Sabourin Héritage Ragnaud Cognac
Wonderfully combining the character of different grape varieties, Ragnaud Sabourin Héritage Ragnaud is a Grande Champagne Cognac comprising 40% Ugni Blanc, 30% Folle Blanche and 30% Colombard grapes. This Hors d’Age expression has been bottled from a parcel of very old Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie from the beginning of the last century that Marcel Ragnaud inherited and has been handed down through the family.
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 Héritage Ragnaud Cognac comes in a classically elegant slim bottle, with a vintage-style label featuring elegant silver text. Each bottle is numbered and comes with a certificate of quality and authenticity.
How to Enjoy
