Tasting review

Eye: Rich amber with ruby reflections.

Nose: Notes of prune and licorice combine to present a fine, nicely balanced bouquet.

Palate: An abundance of fresh fruits, oak and florals deliciously underscored by a clear note of orange. The distinctive tasting character of this cognac is its length - intense and complex, with hints of fog and tobacco leaf.

Description

A 90s Masterpiece from Maison Frapin: Frapin Château de Fonpinot 1992

Another winner from this popular Cognac house, Maison Frapin offers a generous vintage with their Frapin Château de Fonpinot 1992 26 Years Old Cognac. The grapes for this Cognac were harvested on the lush hillside of Château Fontpinot in the heart of the Grande Champagne region, at the ideal time to harvest a grape with high acidity and low alcohol content. An abundant year for the vineyard, this 1992 eau-de-vie was primed for success by being harvested under the essential conditions for aromatic concentration and overall finesse. 

21 generations of winegrowers have made up the Maison Frapin cognac house. Vine growing and distillation dates back to 1270 for the Frapin family - an incredible history that its present generation continues to uphold today, involved in every aspect of the process on their immense Grande Champagne estate. This single-estate reserve has enjoyed outstanding success across the world, having received countless awards and developing a loyal customer base that defies borders.

Millésime 1992’s long aging process in dry cellars guarantees aromatic complexity and impressive elegance. Notes of prune and licorice define the aromas that please the nose - a fine, nicely balanced bouquet. On the palate, refinement and elegance abound as subtle notes develop, namely touches of fruitiness and richness deliciously underscored by a note of orange. The distinctive tasting character of this cognac is its length - blissfully intense and ever-unfurling, making for an experience that feels luxurious.

Centuries of passion and expertise lie at the roots of this sophisticated vintage offering from Maison Frapin, rendering it an ultimately exceptional reminder of an abundant year.

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 one generations! The estate owns 340 hectares of land entirely in the Grande Champagne area, of which 240 are planted with vines. Frapin’s home in the beautiful castle 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, rather fittingly, the house of Frapin is also the only Cognac estate granted permission to call itself a Chateau within the entire Grande Champagne cru. Alongside many other accolades, Frapin was the first Cognac producer to invent a multi-vintage blend, combining vintages of different years to create the perfect taste.
