(UB Collection,Finalist,Tried & True Award)- Slightly earthy on the nose with subtle herbs and orange zest aromas. The pleasant mouth coating texture is richly laden with baking spices and a touch of tobacco. Clove-spiked oranges and light caramel round out the finish.
Wine Maker Notes
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.
