Description

Half a Century of Waiting: Raymond Ragnaud Très Vieille Grande Champagne Cognac

The Raymond Ragnaud Tres Vieille Grande Champagne Cognac is a rare, noble eau-de-vie, the result of a single vintage from 1952. As the name suggests, this is the product of the Premier Cru of the region - Grande Champagne - and it certainly represents everything that makes this growing region such a delight. Powerful and intense yet perfectly balanced, this expression has been bottled at a natural cask strength of 42% ABV.  

The history of the House of Raymond Ragnaud dates back to 1860 when the Ragnaud family owned a small vineyard in the renowned Grande Champagne region. In 1920, Paul Ragnaud acquired the Château of Ambleville and set up producing Cognac. He was succeeded just over two decades later by his son Raymond, who took over caring for the vineyard marketing the eaux-de-vie he had inherited.

In 1963, Raymond’s wife expanded the business, aided by her children Françoise and Jean-Marie. Today it covers 47 hectares in 3 different vineyards - Ambleville, Criteuil and Lignières-Sonneville - sprawled across the slopes of the Premier Cru, an area known for producing eaux-de-vie of unparalleled quality.

For the last 30 years, Françoise Ragnaud-Bricq has remained faithful to her roots and carried on the tradition of supervising the grape harvest with meticulousness. She works alongside the Cellar Master at Maison Raymond Ragnaud to produce their distinct single estate Cognacs, using only two copper pot stills with a capacity of 16 hectolitres each. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The delights don't stop at the taste - even the presentation of this Cognac is something special.  The bold but classic decanter features soft curves and an oversized crystal stopper. It’s housed in a majestic gift box, making this a fantastic acquisition for any connoisseur or for those who treasure fine things.

How to Enjoy Raymond Ragnaud Très Vieille Grande Champagne Cognac

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