Frapin Cognac

The Frapin XO Château de Fonpinot - Leather case, is an elegant and delicate cognac with warm golden autumn hues. A unique Cognac, it may use the appellation 'Château' as the harvest is exclusively picked, distilled, aged, and bottled in the castle itself.  Created from a Grande Champagne blend of eaux-de-vies, this award winning cognac certainly deserves its place in the best of drinks cabinets.

As the name suggests, this wonderful XO cognac comes presented in a beautiful leather case.  It won the Trophy and the Gold Medal in the XO category at the prestigious Wines & Spirits International Challenge in London, 1998.
