Frapin Cuvée 15 Ans d'Age Cognac

Frapin Cognac

Here comes Frapins Cuvée, a cognac blend that consists of eaux-de-vie that are minimum 15 years old, the distilled wine is based on Ugni Blanc grapes. The aging process of the 15 ans starts with 6 months in oak barrels from the Limousine area, the next 10 years the spirit was aged in red casks (that means 5 year old barrels): 8 years in a dry cellar, and 2 years the casks matures in a rather humid chai. After this period the cognac is blended with older qualities of the house of Frapin - and again aged for another 5 years.

The Frapin family has been around the Southwest of France since 1270. Always active in the domain of winegrowing, they specialized in distillation much later on and have since continued to stand strong throughout twenty generations! The estate owns 300 hectares of land entirely in the Grande Champagne area, of which 200 are planted with vines. Frapin’s home in the beautiful caste Fontpinot in the town of Segonzac. The most famous family member was the 16th century author Francois Rabelais, after whom a prestigious Frapin cognac bottle is named: The Cuvee Rabelais. Like some other cognac houses, Frapin needs to extend business through diversifying into other luxury products such as chocolate or coffee. Frapin was the first cognac producer to invent a multi-vintage blend, combining vintages of different years to create the perfect taste.
