Cognac Ragnaud-Sabourin - N°10 VSOP
Ragnaud Sabourin N°10 is aged ten years in oak casks vs 4 years by law. This makes this VSOP one of the smoothest in its category.
Vibrant and deep, the golden yellow colour is tinged with bronze. Its fragrance is almost coy and enigmatic: stewed fruits, hints of coffee beans, floral honey, toasted oak, warming baking spices and a hint of lemon zest.
The palate is beautifully soft and mellow, silky and buttery and slightly tannic with a delicate dried fruit rancio. Flavors of pear, prune, apple give way to notes of toffee and oak with a hint of chocolate. The finish is long and elegant with wood spice and floral notes returning.
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.
