Raymond Ragnaud

The Ragnaud family owned in the 1860s 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 Region of Cognac and which would be classified Premier Cru later on due to its exceptional qualities.

The vineyard at that time as today was planted with Folle Blanche and Ugni-Blanc, a grape variety resistant to phylloxera, a deadly disease that plagued the entire vineyard of Cognac at that 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, helped later 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 slopes of Grande Champagne.

For 30 years Françoise Ragnaud-Bricq, faithful to her ancestral roots has managed her three vineyards by perpetuating the traditions of know-how of this family established in Ambleville for more than 150 years in the vineyard of Grande Champagne Premier Cru.

Description Raymond Ragnaud 1997.

It is a Grande Champagne cognac whose grapes were harvested and distilled exclusively in 1997, a remarkable year for its climatic qualities: sun and rain in perfect alternation. It is a mono-cru.
It is a cognac that has been aged in French oak barrels since that date, and whose qualities improve year after year
The nose as well as the mouth express beautiful flavors and scents ranging from spring flowers to Virginia blond tobacco, black and grey pepper spices with a long finish on coffee touches.
