- +

It is a Grande Champagne cognac whose grapes were exclusively harvested and distilled in 1998, a beautiful year with an ideal spring for the emergence of buds, a very beautiful July flower in summer and very healthy harvests with a very beautiful month of August alternating rain and sun. It is a mono-cru.

It is a cognac that has aged in French oak barrels since that date and whose qualities are improving year after year.

The nose as the mouth expresses beautiful flavors and aromas ranging from spring flowers to blond Virginia tobacco, black and gray pepper spices with a long finish on touches of coffee.

The Ragnaud family owned in the 1860s a small vineyard in Grande Champagne de Cognac, which wasn’t yet classified Premier Cru, but recognized by every professional at the time, like the region’s best Cru. It ended up being classified Premier Cru later, based on its exceptional qualities.

At the time, like now, the vineyard was planted in Folle Blanche and Ugni-Blanc varieties, which resisted to phylloxera, a mortal disease that reached at the time the whole Cognac wine lands.

In 1920, Paul Ragnaud settled in the Castle of Ambleville, followed in 1941 by his son Raymond, who decided to create the Raymond Ragnaud brand by bottling the inherited spirits under his name.

In 1963, his wife with help from her two children, Françoise and Jean-Marie, enhances the vineyard with consecutive acquisitions, to reach 47 hectares dispatched on 3 properties: Ambleville, Criteuil la Madeleine and Lignères-Sonneville on the famous chalky hillsides of the Grande Champagne region.

For 30 years, Françoise Ragnaud-Bricq, truthful to her ancestral roots, manages the three vineyards by continuing with the family traditions and expertise, settled in Ambleville for more than 150 years in the Grande Champagne Premier Cru lands.
