Cognac Frapin - "Chateau Fontpinot" XO
Here is an amazing XO proposed by the Frapin House. This Fontpinot Cognac bears the title of Château because it is produced exclusively within the Domaine Fontpinot. It is therefore a Château Premier Cru 100% Grande Champagne in Old Reserve.
Armed with a beautiful golden and autumnal dress, it will surprise you with its complexity. First by notes of candied fruit and Rancio. Then with fruity, woody and finally floral aromas - in a superb length.
This Château Fontpinot Cognac is unique in the world.
The Frapin House has made the bet to carry out harvesting, distillation, aging and bottling entirely on the domain. Also, this old Cognac reserve single estate benefits from the very rare Château appellation. This is the only Château in Premier Cru to benefit from the 100% Grande Champagne appellation!
The Cognac itself is a fabulous XO. A long aging in dry cellars allows it to offer a bouquet with complexity and endless subtlety.
At sight, this Cognac Frapin Château Fontpinot reveals warm golden reflections - that enthusiasts describe as "wearing the lights of autumn".
The bouquet is subtle and complex. It begins with aromas of candied fruit and port wine. Then appears the famous "Rancio" characteristic of Cognacs over 20 years old.
The bouquet persists, and reveals late notes of wildflowers and hawthorn. Let's move on to the heart of the tasting. You will be charmed by its delicious aromas of candied orange and apricot - supported by oak and vanilla tannins. In the finish, the aromas remain long and complex ...
