Description

Ragnaud Sabourin Paradis Heritage Cognac: a Taste of the Past

Ragnaud Sabourin Le Paradis Heritage Cognac is a Grande Champagne expression that has been kept for generations in the Ragnaud family - it includes more than 90 individual eaux-de-vie from the beginning of the 20th century. About 10% of the blend consists of eaux-de-vie from before 1870, dating back to the early years of this estate. The grapes used for this Cognac are a staggering combination of Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Folle Blanche, Jurancon, Blanc Ramé, Bouilleaux, Balzac Blanc and Chalosse.

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

Understated but studded with elegant details, this is a bottle that allows the Cognac itself to truly shine through. The natural cork is held by a metal cage, securing the precious contents, while a simple label gives the bare details. Accompanied by a cleverly-designed presentation box, this is an expression that is sure to impress.

How to Enjoy

We recommend saving this rare Cognac to celebrate a special moment. Regardless of when you choose to drink it, make sure to sip slowly from a tulip glass, potentially adding a few drops of water to open up the palate.
