COGNAC FRAPIN VSOP

Wine Region: France

Tasting Notes

The Frapin VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac is a blend created solely from eaux-de-vie from the premier cru of the region - Grande Champagne. A beautiful golden amber color, it delights with its complexity, yet is balanced with an exceedingly satisfying finish for a Cognac of this quality.

About the Winery

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. Frapins 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.
