Cognac Ragnaud Sabourin "Paradise" - Gaston Briand's Legacy
An open book on history.
This wonderful Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie passed down from generation to generation. This blend is made from 90% of cognacs from the 1900s, and 10% of spirits distilled before the phylloxera crisis of 1870.
The three grape varieties, Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche are present - but not only. This treasure from the Ragnaud Sabourin House also contains several ancient grape varieties that are now extinct : Jurançon, Blanc Rame, Bouilleaux, Balzac Blanc and finally Chalosse.
This legendary Cognac shows a sumptuous Rancio typical of the Grande Champagne Charente, enriched by marvellous fruity notes.
Unquestionably one of the greatest Cognacs in the world.
Sold in a 50cl bottle.
It is difficult to tell how you feel while tasting this legendary Cognac.
That's why we will quote Gérard Allemandou, Michelin-starred chef during 12 years, but also a famous enthusiast about Cognac and the Charente’s terroir.
"With its bright bronze color and clear veil when shaken, this cognac develops a perfect shine. It pleasantly attacks the nose, dominated by an extremely complex Rancio, the highest level of distillation we can imagine for a Grande Champagne. But its refinement and sophistication take time.
Developing strength while maintaining elegance, the solid taste develops itself into a refined and enchanting roundness - leaving a generous game that brings new pleasures every moment. The balance is perfect between the nose and the palate. It's a moment of peace, a moment of change, a moment of grace.
A great Cognac that should be reserved for exceptional and prestigious moments. You have to taste it at least once to understand the good things are expensive.
