Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin VSOP Selection Annie is this venerable Cognac House’s entry point Cognac. Don’t let that put you off. This is a superb VSOP Cognac as you might expect for a brandy that Annie Sabourin puts her name to.
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 Domaine La Voûte is run by Annie Sabourin and her son Olivier with their master blender. Together they oversee the vines, which stretch across the chalky slopes of Ambleville in the heart of Cognacs 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.All their cognacs are matured as vintages; there is no blending between years, no sweetening and no colouring.
Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin VSOP Selection Annie (Very Superior Old Pale) is a blend in which youngest brandy is aged at least four years in cask.
