Details

This is a very light and pleasant cognac from a top house. The firm is in a valley close to Ambleville in the central/southern region of Grande Champagne. They have damp cellars allowing the cognacs to mature slowly and as with other cognacs from this house, their presentation is always good.

Additional Information

Aroma Light floral and delicate citrusy aromas with a hint of honey
Ageing The cellars are old and damp, ideal for the slow maturation of these fine cognacs which can in some instances take many decades to reach their full maturity. Ageing is in old Limoursin barrels
Distillation The stills at Ragnaud Sabourin are relatively small and the heads are quite narrow allowing greater flavour into the cognac
Flavour There are some delicate spice flavours but there are many flavours of fig, honey and dried fruit. The balance is good and the cognac is a delight to behold
Grape Variety Ragnaud Sabourin grow all eight permitted grape varieties but this contains predominantllyl the principal variety, Ugni Blanc. There is a small quantity of Folle Blanche used here
Reduction and Strength All cognacs of this age have to be reduced and these are lowered in strength very slowly to preserve their quality and flavour
Viticulture The land here is close to perfect with rolling hills and porous chalk substrata allowing the roots to grow and collect water from deep into the ground. The vineyard is protected by the surrounding hills
