Cognac made from Folle Blanche grapes and Grande Champagne

3 February 2012 No Comment

Folle Blanche is the most elegant grape variety in the Cognac, Grande Champagne is the best cru of all Cognac regions. A combination of these two is very hard to find, only some very old (pre-1895) are to be found…

Luckily Raymond Ragnaud made the Folle Blache Vintage 2002, and we tasted it at the Vinexpo! It is truly an exceptional Cognac!

This fine and elegant “eau-de-vie” is produced from a rare and old grape variety the “Folle Blanche”.
The “Folle Blanche” is the original cognac grape variety, abandoned after the attack of phylloxera in the late nineteenth century.
The “Folle Blanche” gives incredibly elegant, delicate and perfumed cognacs.
Raymond Ragnaud House only planted 4 ha of this variety in 1994 to produce rare cognac, with aromas so characteristic of fruits and white flowers.
It was harvested in 2002.

Tasting notes:
Sophisticated nose of white flowers, clover, fresh herbs from the mountains.
The palate is on spicy grapes, plum, cherry plum, ginger final, daffodil, cherry Napoleon, tender and fresh at the same time.
This is a soft cognac, not agressive at all with a very special and delicate flower perfume.’

Price:  € 75.00
