Cognac Frapin is a family-owned, centuries-old dynasty that releases only estate-produced and bottled cognac. Frapin owns 741-acres of land in the Cognac area of Charentes in southwest France, including over 500 acres of Premier Cru de Cognac vineyards planted with superior Ugni-Blanc grapes in the Grande Champagne region. This constitutes by far the largest single vineyard in the heart of this top-rated appellation. Many of the producers I like to work with are small scale, family run operations, but Frapin operates on the level of many of the artisanal Armagnacs producers I am familiar with, rather than the big Cognac houses. Unlike many of its fellow producers, Frapin does not turn to outside growers for grapes and is able to apply the most exacting standards of quality control at every level of production, starting on the vines. Frapin cognacs are, as a result, the epitome of excellence.
"A brilliantly mineral nose is loaded with wildflower, vanilla cream, and toasted honey. An elegant palate unfolds flavors of grilled anise, butter pastry, and baked lemon custard. Long, rich, and satisfying flavors linger for an impressive finish." 97 Points, Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation 2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
