Eye: Brilliant golden amber.

Nose: Very characteristic for Grande Champagne distilled on the lees: honey, gingerbread, hazelnut and a touch of vanilla. Aromatic with complex fruity notes and a floral bouquet of garden flowers.

Palate: Very harmonious with rich flavours of vanilla melting into tannins. The finish is sweet, satisfying and long with lingering spice.

Omschrijving

Frapin VSOP Cognac, the Quintessential Premier Cru blend

The Frapin VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac has been crafted from Ugni Blanc grapes grown across the chalky hills of the Grande Champagne terroir. Distilled on the lees for a longer finish, this Premier Cru Cognac has been aged at the Frapin estate for over four years in Limousin oak, bringing out a wonderful roundness and suppleness in the blend. 

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, Patrice Piveteau. 

Presentation of the bottle

The Frapin VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac is presented in an elegant decanter somewhat reminiscent of the shape of a charentais copper still. It’s finished with a sleek black label, black foil seal and matching gift box. 

How to Enjoy Frapin VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac

To truly appreciate this Cognac, we recommend sipping it neat from a tulip glass at room temperature. A small lump of ice can be added if desired. 

“The quintessential expression of the Frapin style. A Cognac that can combine with anything at any time, as an aperitif, during a meal or after dinner.” - Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master

A lovely Cognac

This is a lovely Cognac. Smells just like a cognac should with subtle apple and spice. For me it has good initial taste and lovely warm afternotes. One I will keep on my list.

Marvelous VSOP

Over the past several weeks, I've embarked on a tasting program of VSOP, Napoleon, and XO Cognacs. To that end, I have tasted 4 different VSOP Cognacs, 2 Napoleon, and 2 XO Cognac bottles. Of those tasted, the Frapin VSOP is in a virtual first place tie with the Daniel Boujou on a point basis. The Boujou may have a slight edge in nose, but the Frapin suits my palate a bit better. In reality it depends on an individual's personal preferences. I happen to enjoy the palate of the Frapin, as it has excellent nutty tones that I appreciate, with a very smooth initial taste when it hits my tongue. The flavors round out to a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon before swallowing. The finish is very smooth and enjoyable with a nutlike rather than vanilla finish. By way of comparison, I included Courvoisier and Hennessy in the VSOP tastings, both of which are also excellent. Of these 4, I would rate the Frapin as #1 on the palate, and in a virtual tie with any of the others w/r to value received.


Over Frapin Cognac

De Frapin familie is al sinds 1270 actief in het Zuidwesten van Frankrijk. Altijd actief geweest op het gebied van wijnbouw, specialiseerden zij zich veel later in distillatie en zijn sindsdien gedurende eenentwintig generaties sterk gebleven! Het domein bezit 340 hectare grond, volledig in de Grande Champagne, waarvan er 240 met wijnstokken zijn beplant. Frapin's thuis in het prachtige kasteel Fontpinot in de stad Segonzac. Het beroemdste familielid was de 16e eeuwse schrijver Francois Rabelais, naar wie een prestigieuze Frapin Cognac fles is genoemd: De Cuvee Rabelais, tamelijk toepasselijk, is het huis van Frapin ook het enige Cognac domein dat toestemming heeft gekregen om zichzelf een Chateau te noemen binnen de gehele Grande Champagne cru. Naast vele andere onderscheidingen, was Frapin de eerste Cognac producent die een multi-vintage blend uitvond, waarbij vintages van verschillende wijnen worden gecombineerd om de perfecte smaak te creëren.
