Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin Florilege is matured in barrels for approximately 40 years, is naturally 46° proof. Its long ageing in red oak casks lend the Cognac all the typical features of the Grand Champagne, with its marked Charente rancio characteristics.
The Ragnaud-Sabourin family owns one of the most prestigious private estates in Grande Champagne and certainly have a grand history. The estate was established in 1850 by Gaston Briand, one of the first in the region to push for an establishment of recognised crus. In 1941 a split took place in the Ragnaud family, and one brother, Raymond Ragnaud, set off on his own. The other brother, Marcel Ragnaud, went on to develop Ragnaud-Sabourin and establish the house as one of the finest in Cognac. Today the Domaine La Voûte is run by three descendants, from grandmother to granddaughter: Denise, Annie and Patricia Ragnaud-Sabourin. Together they oversee the vines, which stretch across the chalky slopes of Ambleville in the heart of Cognac’s premier cru region, Grande Champagne. They are also wholly responsible for all aspects of production and ageing, always determined to produce limited quantities of the highest quality.
Cognac Ragnaud-Sabourin Florilege is a blend of 60% Ugni Blanc and 40% Folle Blanche.
