Cognac Frapin 15-year-old

Terroir driven Cognac brand Frapin has launched a 15-year-old Cognac crafted by cellar master Patrice Piveteau. The new release is a cask strength XO Cognac made from grapes grown in Frapin’s own 240-hectare Grande Champagne estate.

Frapin 15-Year-Old blends eaux-de-vies aged in both humid and dry cellars, with the former lending “roundness and richness”, while the latter gives “finesse and elegance”. The Cognac has aromas of vanilla and black tea, and flavours of dried fruit, toast and spice. The entire 240-hectare Frapin estate lies in Grande Champagne.

At this year’s Cognac Masters, hosted by db’s sister publication, The Spirits Business, Frapin’s VSOP Cognac picked up a Gold medal while its Château Fontpinot XO and Frapin Millésime 1990 were awarded the highest honour of ‘Master’. After re-tasting all of the Master medal winning Cognacs, the judges awarded the Millésime 1990 ‘Taste Master’, the top award of the day.

RRP: £110.
