Tasting review

Tasting review by Frapin:

A very vanilla Cognac with a long finish, dominated by candied fruits and hints of peppery spices.

Awards

  • International Wine and Spirits Competition - 2015 - Gold - Outstanding

Description

The Frapin 1988 Vintage Château de Fonpinot Grande Champagne Cognac is an excellent example of why vintage Cognacs are becoming much sought after.  From the premier growth vineyards of the region - Grande Champagne - it really does showcase how the chalky soils of the area are so adept at producing fruits (and therefore eaux-de-vie) of such high quality.

Offering exceptional value for money, it's the perfect Cognac for anyone who appreciates a powerful, complex, yet perfectly balanced tasting experience.  At 41.5° it's slightly overproof - yet delightfully enjoyable neat, making it the perfect digestif.  A great addition to any Cognac cabinet, and sure to be appreciated by even the most fastidious of palates.  Would be a well received gift by any lover of fine liquor.

About Frapin Cognac

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.
