This cognac unleashes a real concentration of fruit aromas. Generous vanilla, wild flowers, and candied fruit recalling orange and apricots, accompanied by nuances of Port and the famous 'Rancio'. So synonymous with very old Cognac. This cognac offerts balance and a persistant finish.
At Frapin no more than two hours are allowed to elapse between harvest and pressing. Frapin cognacs undergo an entirely natural fermentation: no cultivated yeasts are added. To retain freshness of fruit, filtration is not permitted at Frapin. Distillation is conducted in one of Frapin’s four special Charentes copper stills. Frapin cognacs are subject to a double-distillation process. Aging is conducted in Limousin oak casks. Frapin utilizes dry-cellar aging for Château Fontpinot XO. The dry cellaring allows more evaporation of water than alcohol which leaves the cognac more refined and elegant. Frapin was the first house, and for some time the only, utilizing dry-cellar aging.
