Frapin XO Château de Fontpinot Grande Champagne: A lingering taste sensation

Frapin Château Fontpinot XO is a beautifully mature, 100% Grande Champagne offering from Frapin’s “Tresor du Chateau” collection. This collection offers Cognacs of the highest level of excellence from the house of Frapin. The fruit of a long aging process in dry cellars, this XO is subtle yet complex and boasts strong aromas of fruit, marzipan, hazelnut, nougat and prevailing rancio. A concoction of both rich and balanced flavors Chateau de Fontpinot XO is well recognised for its exceptionally long finish and its subsequent lasting impression.

"Only a true gourmet will appreciate the Château Fontpinot XO to the full. This cognac enchants desserts with its fruity flavours and offers its character to anyone who enjoys the simple pleasures of a cheese board." Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master

The house of Frapin is fronted by a family of award winning pioneers in the art of blending vintage eaux-de-vie, as they were in fact the very first Cognac house to produce a mult-vintage blend. Favouring advanced techniques and natural treatments, Frapin are an innovative Cognac house with a vision for sustainable development. Based in the heart of the Grande Champagne region and covering hundreds of hectares of land, Maison Frapin is a brand to be truly inspired by.

Presentation of the bottle

Unveiling a gorgeous autumnal golden-orange colour with warm highlights, Château Fontpinot XO defines chic. With its slender form and long neck the bottle itself is as elegant as they come. It can be displayed as a stunning centerpiece for the table, when dining with guests or positioned delicately amongst other bottles in a Cognac collection. Presented with a deep red tubed box, accents of silver reflect the brand's prestigious image and finish off the bottle beautifully.

How to enjoy

Adding a drop of water to Château Fontpinot XO, lets the aromas breathe and the power of the Cognac to soften gently.The house of Frapin recommends that this Cognac to be paired with a chocolate dessert, as it will enhance the vanilla and woody flavours of the eaux-de-vie. Serving it with a dark chocolate macaroon, or a three-chocolate praline mousse will seduce the senses and impress guests. Equally, this well-aged blend pairs delightfully with cheeses such as Mimolette, Parmesan, ewe’s milk cheese or blue cheese, as the surprisingly long aromatic finish lingers blissfully on the palate.

very good

The aroma is strong, rich, slightly spirituous, flowers, oak. The tone of green grapes, dried fruits.
I'm not sure I'll buy it again.

Dollar for dollar the best Cognac for a smaller budget, 5 stars

I can occasionally afford the Frapin Extra, but this has become my go to bottle alongside the De Luze brand, as what you get compared with what you're paying (as in De Luze) is such an incredible value. In fact, this is quite a great Cognac regardless of money. Seems comprised mainly of eaux-de-vie around 18-20 years of age, or at least those are what seem to predominate based on the aromas, flavors, and finishing touches I seem to get from this bottle.

Candied and dried fruits mainly on nose bouquet and palate taste, finishes mainly to (perhaps golden) raisin and spiced or peppered oak with hawthorn and vanilla, ultimately fading to the gran finale of bare Limousin oak at around 20min after last sip, lasting about 10min for a total finish of ~30min+

The process I typically use to consume Cognac:
Use tulip glass or contemporary snifter. A contemporary snifter is preferred as no added water is necessary because of the small surface area and superior narrowing. The pour needs to be less than the widest opening of the base's central dome. Do not use a normal brandy snifter. Wait not quite 15min to first sip.

Rancio means the oxidized and fermented fatty acid esters and tannins and their resulting nutty woody earthy flavor or dried and candied or toasted fruits, flowers, and spices. Frapin's rancio reaches full maturity at 40-50 years (being chalky Grande Champagne soil) and is a wooden cigar box rancio at that age. Hints of the beginnings of that can be found in this bottle, which is mainly comprised of 18-20 year eaux-de-vie.

fruit: dried apricot, dried fig, candied orange, (perhaps stewed) raisin, prune,

nuts: marzipan almond, and hazelnut rancio, white honey, nougat, French almond praline

beans: hints of coffeen chocolate

floral: vanilla and hawthorn

misc and wood: port wine, oak (perhaps peppered)

and perhaps less so:

spices: ginger or peehaps more of a gingerbread that is of light molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon, liqourice

beans: tonka beans

fruits: green apple, orange peel or marmalade

nuts: walnut and leather rancio

floral: various wild flowers

misc and wood: "drying laundry"



Seasonal Cognac aroma wheel analysis:
mainly Automne and some late autumn/early winter and hints of summer and Printemps.

The elixir seems mostly to be of dried Apricot and dried fig, and various candied oranges, with raisin and prune, vanilla and hawthorn, various candied almond confections, hazelnut and walnut with peppered oak rancio, and perhaps ginger spice (or gingerbread made with a light amount of molasses).

Autumn:
early: dried Apricot, candied orange, raisin (rather than muscat grape of older Cognacs),chocolate, green apple
mid: ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, liqourice, vanilla (more pod than wood since it's younger)
late: cigar box (not as pronounced as in the Frapin Extra due to younger age)


Winter:
early: black pepper (slight hint, perhaps more of a spiced pepper, coriander-esque...unless Im confusing these modified pepper overtones with the ginger undertones), gingerbread coffee,
late: Hazelnut, walnut, prune, tonka pod and bean (slight hints)

Summer:
early: orange, tonka fruit (slight hint)
late: dried fig (perhaps early Automne since dried)

Spring:
mid: Hawthorn
late: almond, maybe jasmine


Über Frapin Cognac

Die Familie Frapin ist seit 1270 im Südwesten Frankreichs beheimatet. Schon immer im Bereich des Weinbaus tätig, spezialisierte sie sich erst viel später auf die Destillation und ist seitdem seit über 20 Generationen im Cognac-Geschäft tätig! Das Weingut besitzt 300 Hektar Land, das vollständig in der Grande Champagne liegt, davon sind 200 Hektar mit Reben bepflanzt. Frapin Cognac ist in der schönen Ecke Fontpinot in der Stadt Segonzac beheimatet. Das berühmteste Familienmitglied war der Schriftsteller Francois Rabelais aus dem 16. Jahrhundert, nach dem eine prestigeträchtige Frapin-Cognac-Flasche benannt ist: Die Cuvee Rabelais. Wie einige andere Cognac-Häuser muss Frapin sein Geschäft durch Diversifizierung in andere Luxusprodukte wie Schokolade oder Kaffee ausweiten. Frapin war der erste Cognac-Hersteller, der eine Multi-Vintage-Mischung erfand, bei der verschiedene Jahrgänge zum perfekten Geschmack kombiniert wurden.
