Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin Le Paradis is the house’s top Cognac, it’s rarest reserve eaux-de-vie and is presented in a special 50cl carafe-style bottle in a luxury gift box.

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 Cognac Ragnaud-Sabourin and establish the house as one of the finest in Cognac.

Today the 50 hectare 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.

The soils of Grande Champagne, considered by many to be the finest Cognac Cru are characterised by a clayey, chalky thin soil on top of soft chalk from the Cretaceous. From the surface down, the limestone content is very high. This combined with the local climate and a particular variety of Folle Blanche combine to produce fine, light and floral Cognac. The vineyards are planted with 90% Ugni Blanc and 10% of the much rarer Folle Blanche.

The Cognacs at Ragnaud Sabourin are distilled at the estate modern distillery following the specific, traditional, two- stage method in a traditional Charentais pot still. After distillation the eaux-de-vie are quietly matured in French oak barrels in the family’s cellars. The family hold 15 to 17 times the volume yearly sales which gives them greater control over the blends that are produced by the master blender.

Cognac Ragnaud-Sabourin Le Paradis Gaston Briand is made from Eaux-de-vie handed down from generation to generation. A subtle blend of 90% Eaux-de-vie from the beginning of the last century and of 10% Eaux-de-vie from before the phylloxera crisis (before 1870). Grape varieties – Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Folle Blanche, Jurançon, Blanc Ramé, Bouilleaux, Balzac blanc and Chalosse – most of these grape varieties are not permitted in Cognac today. The increasingly complex Charente rancio derives added richness from the fruity aromas of the Eaux-de-vie.

Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin Le Paradis is presented in a special 50cl carafe-style bottle in a luxury gift box – new for 2019.

Tasting Notes

Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin Le Paradis has an elegant nose with a deep and complex bouquet of dried fruits, apricot, date and nutmeg.

The palate is thick, oily and mouth filling. Aromas of marmalade, candied lemon, walnut, honeyed fruits lead to touches of coffee and cocoa, precious wood and a slightly peppery hint.

The finish is exceptionally long and rich, with a stunning rancio backed by touches of fruit.
