Raymond Ragnaud

In the 1860s the Ragnaud family owned a small vineyard in Grande Champagne of Cognac, a cru not yet classified Premier Cru but recognized by all the professionals of the time as the best Cru in the Cognac Region and which would later be classified Premier Cru because of its exceptional qualities.

The vineyard then, as now, was planted with Folle Blanche and Ugni-Blanc, a grape variety resistant to phylloxera, a deadly disease that plagued the entire Cognac vineyard at the time.

It was in 1920 that Paul Ragnaud settled at Château in Ambleville followed in 1941 by his son Raymond, who decided to create the Raymond Ragnaud brand by bottling the eaux de vie of his heritage under his name.

In 1963, his wife, later helped by his two children, Françoise and Jean-Marie, increased the vineyard by successive purchases to 47 hectares spread over 3 properties: Ambleville, Criteuil la Madeleine and Lignères-Sonneville on the famous limestone hillsides of Grande Champagne.

For the past 30 years, Françoise Ragnaud-Bricq has remained true to her ancestral roots, managing her three vineyards and perpetuating the traditions of know-how of a family established in Ambleville for over 150 years in the vineyards of Grande Champagne Premier Cru.

Description Raymond Ragnaud 1995.

The house Raymond Ragnaud has a unique collection of vintages from 1990 to 2006 without interruption. To preserve their authenticity, no caramel, wood or sugar is added. Only a slight reduction with distilled water is carried out, with no pressure filtration or chilling. 

Like all Cognacs from the house of Raymond Ragnaud, this 1995 vintage is made from grapes grown exclusively in the prestigious Grande Champagne cru, a sumptuous blend of eaux-de-vie from the 1995 harvest, a very great vintage. The bottle format is fairly classic and faithful to tradition, while a fairly exhaustive label concerning product details will attract the most discerning connoisseurs. 

This beautiful eau-de-vie is adorned with a flamboyant bronze-yellow color. The nose is magnificently balanced with very well-melted alcohol. Delicate floral aromas are accompanied by fruity and spicy aromas in a lovely marriage: apricots Secs and pears, orange peel, black pepper and nutmeg. Notes of hazelnut and vanilla add their gourmand touch, and a hint of tobacco and oak just the right amount of austerity.  

The palate is resolutely fruity with candied aromas of peaches, apricots and Secs grapes. The body is smooth and unctuous. The mid-palate reveals hints of dark chocolate, as well as a continuation of the spicy notes on the nose: nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper. The finish is long, with fruit Secs, vanilla and dried herbs. A slight tannic sensation of oak wood adds a touch of virility to a very seductive whole.
