The Ragnaud-Sabourin family owns one of the most prestigious private estates in Grande Champagne and certainly have a grand history. The estate was established in 1850 by Gaston Briand, one of the first in the region to push for an establishment of recognised crus. In 1941 a split took place in the Ragnaud family, and one brother, Raymond Ragnaud, set off on his own. The other brother, Marcel Ragnaud, went on to develop Ragnaud-Sabourin and establish the house as one of the finest in Cognac.
No 10 VSOP 1st Cru de Cognac is golden yellow in colour, this cognac has a subtle nose with hints of orange blossom, vanilla and oaky spice.
On the palate there is an initial touch of tannic spice, followed by mellower notes with some honeyed oak and dried fruit.
Lengthy finish with a little kick of spirit.
