Raymond Ragnaud 2001 Cognac Grande Champagne is a single estate cognac from the Grande Champagne region. The cognac was distilled in 2001 and aged for about two decades, before being bottled on 2 April 2021. The history of Raymond Ragnaud starts in the 1860s, when the Ragnaud family owned a small vineyard in the Grande Champagne de Cognac region. In 1920, Paul Ragnaud bought the Château of Ambleville and started producing cognac there. He was succeeded in 1941 by his son Raymond, who set up the Raymond Ragnaud brand. Raymond’s daughter Françoise has now been running the company for over 30 years, supervising the grape harvest and the production of their distinct single estate cognac.
