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.

Frapin tasting review:
Colour : Warm reflections of a golden autumn.
Bouquet : Floral: hawthorn and wild flowers.
Mouth : Very long in the mouth, notes of candied apricots, of orange and flavours of old Port as well as the famous ' Rancio '(walnut, hazelnut, dried fruits mixed with dried flowers (narcissus and hyacinth) flavours).
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.
