A cracking single varietal offering from Raymond Ragnaud. This mighty distillery has been in business since 1860, and remains family owned. The distillery maintains its vineyards within Grande Champagne premier cru, regarded as the finest cru within the Cognac region. Folle Blanche grape is known producing an acid wine, with an oiliness and a hint of minerality, perfect for creating delicious Cognac. This is also a 2002 vintage Cognac, meaning that all the grapes were harvested in one season, and it only uses spirit from one distilling year. Vintage bottlings are usually only reserved for the best harvest years. On the nose this Cognac offers rich aromas of oak, chalk, flint, earth and sweet grapes. Here the nose really carries the influence of this Cognac’s terrior. The palate brings thicker fruitier flavours of dried fruit and grape, with a little green oak and toffee. The finish lingers with drying grape and woodspice. The packaging of this Cognac represents the grape in all its glory, with striking colours.
