Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin Heritage is a very rare bottling of old Cognac, the oldest that the estate own.
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 Annie Sabourin her son Olivier. 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 Heritage is bottled from a parcel of very old Grande Champagne eaux-de-vies from the beginning of the last century that Marcel Ragnaud inherited and has been handed down through the family. All of these old Cognacs are fully authenticated and each bottle is numbered and comes with a certificate of quality and authenticity.
Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin Heritage is a blend of 40% Ugni Blanc, 30% Folle Blanche and 30% Colombard.
