Eye: A beautiful golden hue with warm highlights - a lively looking Cognac.

Nose: Complex aromatically, with notes of vanilla, black tea and freshly cut wood, which evolve into a dried flower bouquet.

Palate: Flavors of dried fruits, toast, and a finish that lasts with a touch of spice. A robust Cognac that evokes the traditional finesse that is commanded by a Frapin Cognac.

Description

Frapin XO 15 Years Old Cognac - 100% Grande Champagne

Introducing the Frapin “15 Years Old” XO Cognac, which descends from one single-family estate in the Premier Cru of the region’s terroirs. The 240-hectare vineyard is located at the heart of the Grande Champagne appellation and is a gorgeous blend of eaux-de-vie crafted by the Frapin Cellar Master, Patrice Piveteau.

He comments, “Frapin 15 Years Old has been bottled at cask strength and bears the seal of the house which signifies our quest for authenticity. It passes directly from the barrel to bottle with no adjustment or chill-filtering in order to preserve all of the naturally rich aromas and flavors of this Cognac.”

Demonstrating impeccable skills in alchemy, it is an XO that has been aged in both humid and dry cellars. The humidity of the former gives the Cognac roundness, full body and a richesse, and the latter gives a fine, elegant quality.

Frapin have developed a reputation for producing fine Cognacs that perfectly blends tradition and modernity. Established in the region as far back as 1270, the Frapin family have passed down generations of savoir-faire.

Presentation

We love the delicate white, embossed label of the Frapin 15 ans d'âge Cognac. Bottled at 45.3% ABV, it has a slightly higher proof.

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.
