Description

Raymond Ragnaud XO Extra Vieux Cognac

Raymond Ragnaud XO Extra Vieux is a Cognac delight crafted from only the best eaux-de-vie of the Grande Champagne region. A long-aged Cognac, matured for significantly longer than the 6 years required by regulation. The years of ageing have allowed the spirit to gracefully mellow, creating a full-bodied, rancio-led Cognac with surprisingly little oak, and an infinity of elegance. Revealing a beautiful golden color, this well-aged blend impresses from the very first assault on your senses. From it's deepened color due to aging, through to the way it tickles and teases on both the nose, palate and lengthy finish - this premier Cru XO is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Faithful to the family secrets at the heart of their craft, today Francoise Ragnuad-Brick and her daughter Stephanie, front the house of Raymond Ragnaud as one of the few female led brands to exist in Cognac. Passing down 4 generations of artisanal skills and essential savoir-faire, today the range of premium quality Premier Cru Cognacs pays homage to when the brand first started back in the mid-1800s. With an international reputation and high quality Cognacs at the forefront of production, Maison Raymond Ragnaud is an admirable family-run business worth knowing about.

Presentation of the bottle

As with many in the range of Raymond Ragnaud's Cognac, XO Cognac isn’t dressed up in fancy and extravagant packaging. Instead, the presentation is kept minimal and in keeping with the traditional style of classic Cognac decanters. As far as the house of Raymond Ragnaud is concerned, the Cognac itself should do all the talking - and this one is a fine example.

How to enjoy

Offering a rich range of aromas, this XO is best enjoyed neat so that the powerful combination of flavors can be enjoyed in its entirety - without distractions. Sip slowly to savor the experience, one sip at a time. By drinking from a tulip glass, the narrow top of this type of glass will delicately distribute the arrival of the floral and spicy aromas.
