Cognac Ragnaud-Sabourin N°35 "Fontvieille"
A tribute to the founder of the estate, Gaston Briand, this Cognac N°35 Fontvieille has been created from eaux-de-vie coming from the oldest vines of the estate. The number 35 refers to the number of years it spent in barrels.
The alchemy of the grape varieties also follows the will of the first cellar masters: a perfect marriage between Ugni Blanc (60%), Folle Blanche and Colombard, for a rich and multi-dimensional result, a fragrant nose of licorice and linden, slightly toasted, with notes of almonds.
On the palate, this cognac is particularly well balanced. The attack is mellow; it offers mature and warm flavors of brown honey, orange zest, spices, as well as the very much sought-after Rancio. Its finish is robust, with spice and pepper.
Since 1850, the Ragnaud-Sabourin family has been cultivating a vineyard located in the heart of the Grande Champagne region, the first growth of cognac. All their cognacs have been produced and marketed for 4 generations, from the top-of-the-range eaux de vie distilled on the property and without blending of crus. Today, the estate is run by Annie Ragnaud-Sabourin and her son Olivier.
