Frapin - Cognac Grande Champagne VIP XO - 700 ml - 40%
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
«This is a rich, complex and evolving cognac in which everyone will find their own aromatic references.»Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master
This blend, enhanced with very old cognacs of the family cellars, is harvested, distilled over lees and aged at the estate, whose 240 hectares are located in Grande Champagne. Its long ageing in our humid cellars combines roundness, bouquet and suppleness.
A cognac with rich bronze tones and a natural purity, Frapin XO VIP charms from the first glance.
Bouquet: pleasing floral notes and a beautiful aromatic complexity punctuated with subtle woody tones. An overall elegance typical of aged Cognacs from Grande Champagne.
After its delicate aromas, its power in the mouth comes as a surprise. XO VIP offers a palate of flavours, revealing in turn chocolate notes, dried fruit, candied fruit, and gingerbread. The expression is sophisticated and complex, with depth, but without ever losing the original freshness of the fruit. Composed with the precision of a sonnet, XO VIP is an ode to the passion behind its creation and flavour.
