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.

not my favourite from frapin, and not really typical, but kind of a representative cognac for the producer nonetheless

    A generous birthday gift -first bottle. Lovely lightness on the tongue, some sweetness and lingering `notes` in the mouth. Delicate and delightful. Good to have friends of taste !

      Frapin XO Chateau de Fontpinot Grande Champagne

      The colour of Frapins XO is golden, on the nose: Some flowers, in the mouth: Some dark almonds, dry flower, orange - a long presence. The aftertaste is dominated by Rancio, staying complex and fine at the same time.
