Notes: Because it comes from grapes picked, distilled, aged and bottled in-house, Frapin Cognac XO Chateau de Fontpinot has the right to put the appellation "Chateau" on its attractive label. This extra-old cognac gives aromas of vanilla, wild flowers, candied fruits and the rancio typically found in old cognacs. Naturally fermented, double distilled and dry-cellar aged in Limousin oak casks, this Grande Champagne cognac has an attractive color that evokes the soft amber hues of a sunny day in the fall. Flavors of vanilla and nuts come through on the palate and continue through a lingering finish.
