The Frapin Cigar Blend Vieille Grande Champagne Cognac has been, as the name suggests, created specifically to pair with your favorite cigar. This XO quality, Grande Champagne Cognac is a single estate reserve, made from eaux-de-vie grown on the Frapin Estate.
It's a powerful yet harmonious Cognac, that delights with the complexity of its flavors. Think candied apricots, cigar box, and a subtle yet noticable hint of old port. And of course, as one would expect from a Cognac of this quality, the much desired 'rancio' that only occurs in after many years of aging. And we have to say, it has a finish that's almost miraculous in terms of length... All in all, a wonderful Cognac that's perfect for the purpose in which its intended.

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.
