Cognac Ragnaud-Sabourin - N°4 VS
Distilled exclusively from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Grande Champagne, it shows a surprising and irresistible complexity for such a young Cognac. On the nose, it displays floral notes of lime tree and hyacinth, typical of Grande Champagne. Initial aromas brim with the fragrance of flowering grape vines. But with time in the glass, more subtle hints of mint, ripe grapes and dry hay become apparent.
The palate is dense and buttery, lightly aromatic. White fruit and soft spices come through the middle with fresh citrus and lime notes. The heart offers aromas of apricot, apple and baked fruit. Hints of wood, nougat and a little chewy toffee emerge on the finish. This young and well mannered, energetic cognac finishes powerfully.
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.
