Description

Frapin Vintage Chateau de Fontpinot Millésimé 1986 Cognac

The Domaine Chateau de Fontpinot 1986 is a very special vintage Cognac that has spent 20 years aging in oak barrels. With only 1750 litres created, only 5 casks were made available meaning this is a truly rare limited edition Cognac worthy of its place in your hands. Individual numbering of each bottle ensures both authenticity and exclusivity.

The house of Frapin is fronted by a family of award winning pioneers in the art of blending vintage eaux-de-vie, as they were in fact the very first Cognac house to produce a mult-vintage blend. Favouring advanced techniques and natural treatments, Frapin are an innovative Cognac house with a vision for sustainable development. Based in the heart of the Grande Champagne region and covering hundreds of hectares of land, Maison Frapin is a brand to be truly inspired by.

Presentation of the bottle

Housed inside a tall and traditional decanter, this Cognac is a classic from inside out, details accentuate the bright glow of the nectar it beholds with pure elegance. Individual numbering of each bottle ensures both authenticity and exclusivity. An elegant centerpiece or accessory to the table when tasting this Cognac delight amongst guests.

How to enjoy

As this is a very mature vintage Cognac, it is best enjoyed neat - at room temperature. However, for those who are open to a more long lasting tasting experience - enjoy this Cognac as a digestive following a delightful dinner or alongside a fine cigar of choice.

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.
