Wine Region: Cognac - Grande Champagne - France
Tasting notes: With an amber colour with orange hues, this blend reveals a particularly delicate nose, with notes of orange and candied apricot and discreet woody aromas. On the palate, they melt into notes of dried fruit and liquorice, before revealing the complex aromas of the famous Charentais rancio, the scent tobacco and cigar boxes. Its exceptionally long finish completes the tasting of this limited edition.
About the winery:
Frapin is one of the oldest producers of Cognac in France. Indeed, not only is the family’s history closely intertwined with the history of Cognac, its predates it by several centuries.
The Frapin family first appeared in what would become the Cognac region in 1270. The family have been wine growers, and later distillers, for 21 generations. Their 750-acre estate, the Chateau de Fontpinot in Segonzac, set in the heart of Cognac’s Grand Champagne district, has 600 acres of ugni blanc vineyards. It is the only Cognac producer that is classified as a Chateau.
All of the grapes come from the estate in the Grand Champagne appellation. This district is considered the heart of Cognac, and is the source of its greatest Cognacs. Frapin distills its base wine on the lees, giving the resulting spirit a creamier, more substantial palate weight.
