Raymond Ragnaud – Folle Blanche Grande Champagne Cognac

21 June 2011 2 Comments

At the Vinexpo, Raymond Ragnaud presented a new Cognac product, which is the best of two worlds. They used Grande Champagne (first cru, and mostly described as the best) and a very old, rare grape called Folle Blache. This grape was the original grape the Cognac-industry used in the past, but after the Phylloxera around 1880, the are using mostly Ugni Blanc. A Phyloxera resistant grape.

Many Folle Blanche lovers weren’t able to buy Folle Blache Cognacs for a very long time, but luckily there are more and more products with Folle Blanche entering the market, such as the Beaulon 7 ans and the Godet Antarctica.

These products aren’t from the Grande Champagne region, so this product from Raymond Ragnaud is quite special!

The presented bottle is a vintage from 2002, the will launch a new younger vintage each year. The aging time will be the same with about 8 years of aging.

Tasting notes of this Raymond Ragnaud Folle Blanche Grande Champagne Cognac will be posted soon!

More from the Vinexpo will be coming on the biggest independent international Cognac website.
