Frapin 1979 Trésors du Château Vintage Cognac: Four Decades of Elegance

The 1979 vintage was the first vintage launched by Cognac Frapin in 1998. At that time, a barrel had been set aside to continue a longer ageing process, and after 40 years of waiting, the Frapin 1979 Trésors du Château Vintage Cognac was born. Produced from Ugni Blanc grapes and distilled on the lees, this Premier Cru Cognac comes from a 240-hectare vineyard characterised by limestone-studded clay soil and a crumbly limestone subsoil typical of the Grande Champagne terroir. The BNIC (Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac) has guaranteed the authenticity of this Cognac as they have monitored the sealing of all barrels of Frapin eaux-de-vie.

Initially a family of winegrowers, the Frapin family have been settled in south-west France since the 13th Century. After taking up the craft of distillation, they have kept up production of eaux-de-vie for a staggering 20 generations, and the current head of the company is a direct descendant of the founder. The family’s established headquarters is at the charming Château de Fontpinot, nestled among their vineyards in the heart of Grande Champagne. 

Today, Frapin Cognacs are entirely harvested, distilled and aged at the Domaine and the family are fiercely proud of their single-estate status. The House of Frapin control every aspect of production and eschew scientific methods, instead relying on age-old traditions - as well as the extraordinary palate of their Cellar Master.

Presentation of the Bottle

The Frapin 1979 Trésors du Château Vintage is presented in a tall, straight bottle typical of the producer, with an elegant label displaying the age of the Cognac. Instead of a presentation box, this bottle comes with a stylish faux-leather carrying case. 

How to Serve

To fully appreciate the individuality of this vintage, we suggest enjoying it neat in a tulip glass - after letting it rest for 30 seconds to develop fully. A dash of water may be added to allow the aromas to open up further.

Over Frapin Cognac

De familie Frapin is sinds 1270 gevestigd in het zuidwesten van Frankrijk. Ze zijn vanaf het begin altijd betrokken geweest bij de wijnbouw. Later hebben ze zich gespecialiseerd in het distillatieproces en ze zijn al meer dan 20 generaties aanwezig in de cognacindustrie! Het landgoed is eigenaar van 300 hectare grond die volledig in de Grande Champagne ligt, en waarvan 200 hectare met wijnstokken is beplant. Het landgoed Frapin ligt in de Grande Champagne op het Château de Fontpinot in Segonzac. Het beroemdste lid van de familie was de 16e eeuwse schrijver Francois Rabelais, naar wie een prestigieuze Frapin Cognac-fles is vernoemd: de Cuvee Rabelais. Net als sommige andere cognachuizen moet Frapin zijn activiteiten uitbreiden door te diversifiëren naar andere luxeproducten zoals chocolade of koffie. Frapin was de eerste cognacproducent die een multi-vintage blend uitvond, waarbij Cognacs van verschillende jaren werden gecombineerd om de perfecte smaak te creëren.
