Tasting review

Tasting review by Frapin

A vanilla Cognac, round and powerful with a very pronounced finale of candied fruits with very slightly peppery notes.

Description

The Frapin 1989 Vintage Château de Fonpinot Grande Champagne Cognac is a wonderful vintage from the premier cru of the region - Grande Champagne.  Slightly overproof at 41.2°, this is the epitome of why the soils of Grande Champagne are the most sought after when it comes to the quality of the fruit (and therefore eau-de-vie) they produce.

Complex, powerful, yet balanced and rounded, this vintage year produced wonderful fruity backnotes with vanilla essence, and a delightful hint of pepper on the palate.  Presented in a traditional style Cognac bottle and box, it offers excellent value for money for such a high quality product.  A great addition to any drinks cabinet.

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.
