Frapin

Installed in southwest France since 1270, the Frapin family has been winemakers, then distillers for over twenty generations, owning a 240-hectare Vineyard in Grande Champagne.

It's Grande Champagne, classified as Premier Cru in the Cognac Region, that will become the chosen land of this family settled at Château de Fontpinot.

In its family tree, the Frapin family includes the famous 16th-century writer Antoine Rabelais. In a nod to history, Maison Frapin's logo features the writer's golden feather.

The wines are distilled with the lees at Frapin. After the traditional double distillation known as "Charentaise", the newly distilled eaux de vie are housed for a quarter in new barrels and for the rest in red or older barrels.

The Frapin house produces a wide range of Cognacs, the oldest of which date back to 1888.

Description Frapin VIP XO.

The Frapin House has been established in the heart of the Grande Champagne region in Segonzac for many generations.

Distilled with the lees, the XO VIP is then aged at the Domaine in damp cellars for several decades, which will give it all its roundness and suppleness.

The XO VIP decanter was inspired by the encounter between a perfume bottle and an inkwell. A subtle alliance between the elegant perfume of this XO and the love of letters of the House of Frapin, a distant heritage of a prestigious ancestor, François Rabelais.

It comes from the old reserves of the family.

Color: Cognac with golden tones, rich with natural purity.

On the nose it is distinguished by pleasant floral notes and a beautiful aromatic complexity punctuated by subtle woody touches.

An elegant set typical of old Grande Champagne Cognacs.

In the mouth: after the delicate smell, the power in the mouth offers an anthology of flavors, revealing in turn chocolate notes, dried fruits, candied fruits, gingerbread...

The expression is sophisticated, complex, deep, without ever losing the original freshness of the fruit.
