Brilliant golden amber in colour. The bouquet is very characteristic for Grande Champagne distilled on the lees: honey, gingerbread, hazelnut and a touch of vanilla. Aromatic with complex fruity notes and a floral bouquet of garden flowers. The palate is harmonious with rich flavours of vanilla melting into tannins. The finish is sweet, satisfying and long with lingering spice.

The Frapin family has been around the Southwest of France since 1270. Always active in the domain of winegrowing, they specialized in distillation much later on and have since continued to stand strong throughout twenty generations! The estate owns 300 hectares of land entirely in the Grande Champagne area, of which 200 are planted with vines. Frapin’s home in the beautiful caste Fontpinot in the town of Segonzac. The most famous family member was the 16th century author Francois Rabelais, after whom a prestigious Frapin cognac bottle is named: The Cuvee Rabelais. Like some other cognac houses, Frapin needs to extend business through diversifying into other luxury products such as chocolate or coffee. Frapin was the first cognac producer to invent a multi-vintage blend, combining vintages of different years to create the perfect taste.
